Find the Blunder: Read through the game below. Somewhere amongst the moves, one player will make a blunder that would swing the game heavily in their opponent’s favor. Their opponent will not punish them for it. Your job is to identify which move was a blunder and what move should have been played to punish it.

Note: This exercise has 2 respectable punishments of the same blunder. One is slightly better than the other. Can you find both?
