Jun-22-22  ILikeKeres: Interesting, dynamic game. 20. f5 leads to the threefold repetition, and I'm not sure if there are any alternatives if white was in a more fighting mood.

Caruana may need to mix things up if he wants to catch up to Nepo.

Indeed this is pretty futuristic chess. Like Gustafsson mentioned, it looks like an online game where White thought he could move the rook first when castling, then realizing that was not possible.

16..Bxc3 was pointed out by Carlsen as a good chance for Black but it is not an easy position to play.
