I'm new here, just like chess and not study so deeply. I could not understand this move, Qxe5, someone explain to me?
Thank you and sorry for the way I write, English is not my native language.

The move exploits three things:
1. The black knight on
f4 is trapped and will fall.
2. The black pawn on
d6 is pinned.
3. The black King is trapped behind its own pawns allowing the threat of a back-rank mate.
This is the best move because if the pawn on D6 were to take the Queen, the following move would be to checkmate with the D2 rook.
