Besides going over what went on at the TePe Sigeman & Co tournament, I focused on the Superbet Classic in Romania. In the key game of round 5, Fabiano Caruana pulled off a nice squeeze against Shakhriyar Mamedyarov to bounce back from the previous day’s loss.

But first a warm-up: From Deac vs. Firouzja. The position is a complete mess, but the French-Iranian superstar has a fantastic winning concept. Can you find it?
