About 24 minutes into the video, you pointed out the move Ka8, which is the saving move for black instead of Qd5. But what would black play after white responds with Nc3? The black queen isn't safe anywhere on the a8-h1 diagonal, but can't leave the diagonal because b7 must be protected. The best I can see is for black to pick up the rook on b1 for his queen, but the attack is still on with white having a huge material advantage. Am I missing something?

Hi

Sorry for not replying sooner. If, after 39....Ka8 instead of Qd5 white plays 40.Nc3 attacking the Q black has an unstoppable attack with Qe3+ if 41. Kf1 it's mate in a few moves after ...Ng4 if 41.Kh1-Ng4 anyway and if white tries to press his Q side attack with 42.Rxb7 (without check) it's mate with ...Nd1 discovered check 43.Kf1-Qf2# or 43.Kh1-Qe1# Alternatively 42....Nh3 discovered double + 43.Kf1-Qf2# or if 43.Kh1 the banal smothered mate ...Qg1+ 44.RxQ (forced) Nf2#.
