   Jun-10-23 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2023 (replies)
Confuse: Nakamura and another analyst both thought Caruana was thinking of: 18. Qa5, which seems to be a good move on the surface, but gets destroyed by 19. Ng5 which leads to some elaborate material loss/mating patterns. After seeing this Caruana had no choice but to go for Qd5 which led to
   Apr-20-23 Keres vs Smyslov, 1953
Confuse: Anish mentioned this game in the R7 game live analysis between Ding and Nepo, amazing that this concept of the bishop covering that h8 square has so much impact!
   Nov-23-22 Rublevsky vs Kalinin, 2002 (replies)
Confuse: Is there any refutation to 25 Rxf7 hxg5 26 Rh3? Got the same solution as Mayankk and just wanted to confirm since mel posted stockfish which didn't include that variation
