I found the solution, but only after doing everything wrong first.

Then I watched the video.

Once Dane points out a move, I think, "But, of course!"

I need to learn how to see patterns better.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Saleem! Yes, things certainly seem obvious after the fact, but remember, neither of these players (a USCF master and 1900+ opponent) did not recognize these details immediately / overlooked the resource. It takes time to recognize these patterns, and also know which patterns to follow / ignore. The best advice I can give is to trust your intuition, and try to look for the most forcing moves first. Even though b4 looks "foolish," it is a forcing move that speaks to the "forking distance" pattern between the queen and knight. In other situations, this won't work, but over time, it will be a resource worth keeping in mind. 

Thanks again for contributing to our forum!
