    Did you study a lot about using pawn structure through your chess career? I know pawns can promote, but you sacrificed pieces and had 7 pawns, while b had mostly pieces and you cut your way toward the king nicely, completely contradicting the idea of the value of pieces.

    Is sacrificing the knight on f7 the best move(with biggest compensation) in any game? W prevents b from castling making it take longer to bring out the rooks. Also, f2 is the same for b, but w going first usually gets to castle before b get's the chance to take advantage of the weakness.

    I'm surprised an IM allowed the knight to get to f7. Would Kh6 been better than Ke7, since the Ke7 seems to just block the a3-f8 diagonal for the Bishop and the d8-h4 diagonal for the Queen; while Kh6 defends the f7 square. I know you said Ke7 defends the pawn, but defending a pawn while restricting development doesn't seem good.

    can someone explain why did he resign when K came to F6? I understand that he is losing and getting beat, but did he just give up and did not want to fight any longer? or, is there any tactical strategy menacing black that I am missing??? Please explain what sequence would follow that made Black resign... :-/

    What am i missing at 14:25, that the knight can't fork the king and queen on f7?

    Very strong over the board play,  but against weak defence. I did enjoy the video and your agressive play with the beautiful final tactics.

    Part of the long-term compensation is that black taking the knight with the king lost the right to castle.  Then the king moved to g8 making it tifficult to get the h8 rook into the game.  The long-term compensation is giving the piece to create pernament positional weaknesses in blacks position ratehr than for a piece.  I am not really good myself though so someone else may well add more or explain it better.
