    16:14 It's not just that we're enjoying it so much, some of us are a bit slower. For example, it took me a second or two to figure out why you can't escape perpetual check at 13:20 by moving to H1 (well, you can, it's no longer perpetual once you're there 😄)

    Then he loses his knight to the rook which controls the f file with Dubov's king on the wrong side. Game over.
