White to move. What is the best continuation for white?
1.Be7+ Kh32.Rg3+ Kxh23.Bd6 Be44.Rg6+ Rxd65.cxd6 Bxg66.d7 Bf57.d8=QIt's a win for white.
While I was solving this puzzle I made a mistake on the fifth move and got a draw. Then I guessed where I made a mistake. It was 5.Rxd6. The only winning move is cxd6.
Yes, I remember this. I forget what Carlsen played, but he didn't find Be7+ and the move he made showed up as a red move at Chessbomb. It didn't matter, though, he eventually got the rook behind the pawn and the pawn to c6 before Matlakov resigned. I think the final position, it was clear that eventually black would have to give up the bishop minimum to stop the c-pawn while white still retained the h2 pawn.
There are some really nice zugzwang motifs inside this chess problem in both the main line and the variations.

Precise tactic execution is required
You should be able to spot the tactic motif in 5-10 seconds.
what if you do 1. Qb1?? and your opponent does ..c1=Q!! then white is screwed.
For me, this is Rambo Attack Tactic [ 1) R5e8+!! Kh7 2) Qxd2! R8xd2 3) Rexa8 ~ Black resigned 1-0 ]
