I am think Magnus is win.

So I'm still pretty new at chess, but I had a great time watching the last 2 hours of yesterday's match between Magnus and Nepo. I'm just having a hard time understanding move 133 and 134. Would it not have been better if black had taken the Rook on F5? Was this a mistake

If queen takes rook on F5, knight will fork with check on G7 and black will lose queen.
