The Disruptive d Pawn

In this game played at the internet chess club, white has an extra pawn and enjoys a healthier looking pawn structure. So materially and structurally White is winning this chess game. However White is busted. Yes, White is dead lost. One reason the first player is busted is the extreme decentralized position of his King at h1. Another reason White is losing this chess game is the vulnerable position of his Rook at e6. (Being attacked by Black’s Monarch)

Also White’s doubled Rooks, ironically , are inferior to Black’s Rooks that play vital defensive and offensive roles. After Black plays d4 attacking the White e3 Rook, White’s e6 rook trepidates. ¬†Why? Because the e3 Rook can not defend e6 rook and also prevent the bolting d pawn from queening.
