    guys remember
    1. Knight cant be captured easily.
    2. Even if they did white has already got 3 pawns
    3. Black king cant castle and is stranded at center
    4. Black has totally lost center and way underdeveloped.

    giving 2 pieces for the rook isn't that good.. the knight is trapped.. soon after rooks control eighth rank he's going to be captured..

      +The Dardans Even if not, it would be rook and two pawns, which is significantly different than just a rook, especially at GM level, as Nigel himself implies with his praise for the losing side "defending with great tenacity despite being a pawn down".

      It is not so easy to capture this Knight at all. If it is allowed to go back to f7, it will find a save home at d6. To stop this black could use only his light bishop, but Nf2 to g5 is strong then.
      Nc6 d6 will be met by Ba3 g5 ..... hopeless

    Holy shit. I would have did that move at 2:18.

    If Black didn't take the bishop, as was commented at the end of the video, he is still just a pawn down for nothing. And not just any pawn either- to lose a pawn that helps control the centre for no compensation is devestating.
