Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-26-12  optimal play: It's usually a shock to find yourself suddenly "Queenmated" but Black should have seen this coming after 14.♗e2 yet he played 14...♗c5? putting his piece en prise to protect the d-pawn? Better would have been 14...♘c6 so that if 15.♕c1 then 15...♕g6 and the piece is guarded whilst the Queen can escape the trap.

btw I'm not sure that D44 is the correct ECO for this game since at no time is c6 played by Black. I would think it should be categorised as simply D37 QGD,4.Nf3
