White was winning thru the entire game then a blunder on move 40.Rh1 should have been Kg3 but still a good game..

Wow! I looked the game up on Chessbomb- black missed the drawing move, but it isn't an easy one to spot, is it- you have to allow the white pawn to queen, and that goes against the grain for most players.

‪1...Bxe4+!!!, 2. Qxe4 Qg5+!, 3. Kf3 Rf8+, 4. Ke2 Rf4!, 5. Qxf4 Qxf4, 6. d8=Q Qe5+!!, 7. Kd2 Qb2+, 8. Ke3 Qe5+ forcing threefold repetition by perpetual Queen checks. ‬
