  Everett: I prefer my queen without a sack, but anything goes these days.
Apr-15-20  konstantin71: Technically the 14th move for Black have to be Rook's move instead of Castling. Karpov moved his Rook first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3f...
Apr-16-20  vonKrolock: In some moment in the past century, the rule was changed, and playing the King first was no longer obligatory during the process of castling. Nepomniachtchi had a nice attitude, letting pass the minor transgression, and then winning the game in good style.

<30.Qxd6> Not exactly a sacrifice, because the Queen reappears two moves later, like the Phoenix bird. A nice combination though.
