GM Wesley So in NH Chess Tournament: A Lose vs Ljubojevic

GM Wesley So losses against GM Ljubomir Ljubojevic of Serbia. Almost all the chess authors tell us that we learn more when we lose our games and this is another learning experience for GM Wesley So. After four rounds, the "Experience Team" inches closer to the "Rising Stars" and the scorecards tell us: 11-9 in favor of the Rising Stars.
Report from the NH Chess Tournament Website:
"Ljubomir Ljubojevic recovered from his poor start with a win over Wesley So. The young grandmaster from the Philippines had absolutely no complaints after the opening and ambitiously went for more with 15…Bxd4, giving White doubled d-pawns. Black was still fine, but he overestimated his position and when he let his queen be sidelined on h3, he should have started looking for ways to save the game. Afterwards he was unhappy about 23…a3 and thought that at this point he should have tried to bring back his knight into play with 23…N2c4. Now he was forced to sacrifice his queen, but this act of desperation didn’t bring any relief and after 32 moves he had to resign."
Here is the game:
