A truly eye opening loss

This game was played on ICC, time control 45/45. I found it instructive... mainly because I was up a whole piece, my king seemed fine, and yet I went on to lose playing no blunders. I think that's all that needs to be said! Very well played by white.

 

So yeah maybe there was something better I could do, but even so the game shows how a huge lead in development can lead to other positional advantages (maybe even outweighing an extra piece!), and that it doesn't necessarily have to lead to a huge kingside attack for it to be useful.
