    If ...Rb3 like you say at the end of the video, White actually does not have to move his queen immediately. There is the intermediate Re8+, forcing the black K to move, and then White can get his Q out of the way. Why does this matter? I haven't put it into an engine or anything, but at the very least when ...Rxe2+ KxR, d3+ now the check does not come with an attack on the White R, so that would probably change things quite a lot. Love your videos, Agad! Just think that in this case maybe there's another line worth exploring, and probably Magnus was correct in getting his K out of the way first. ;)
