    At 5:00 , if pawn takes a6, then knight takes c6 threatening rook b8 checkmate... So bishop captures knight c6 then queen captures bishop on c6 then material is equal... But blacks king is now open also pawn at a6 is hanging. Basically it's an advantage for white!!!

    I don't get it. Rb2 is a blunder, engine gives Bb7+, ...Kb8, Be4, ...Kc8, Bd3 and black has to start giving up material to not get checkmated. Position where game ends was about +3 and would have reached a rook vs rook game with white just being more active
