Blacks plays ... Rb8 with the idea of ... b5. Unfortunately after ... Ne5 h3, ... Bd7 is not possible because of white playing f4 trapping the Knight on e5. So it seems that ... Rb8 is a waste of a tempo.

Here better seems to be 23. Nbxa5 rather than 23. Qxb5 taking an extra pawn.

Amazing, but this is one of the best Blitz game of Firouzja vs the Blitz master GM Nakamura, simply look how this 15 years old completely dominated Nakamura on this particular game :shock:
