In this game, we see a very typical Tal attack. If we look at the final position, we can see how helpless Black's King is. Black's King is trapped in his original position threatened by White's Queen and Rook.
In order to attain victory, there are times that we need to momentarily give up the exchange to gain initiative. Unreasonably holding on to your pieces often spells disaster in games where the initiative is more important than the relative value of the pieces.
