  Honza Cervenka: Very interesting endgame. White should have played 29.c5 to prevent Nd6 and also 32.d5 could have been better than text continuation. Mattison played the ending with great accuracy.

  Chessical: <Honza Cervenka> Perhaps the ending could be still be held after <33.Nb7>? This seems to lead to the elimination of the Q-side pawns, and probably a drawn ending after:

<33.Nb7> Nxd4 34.c5 Nxb3 35.cxb6 Nd2+ 36.Ke2 Nc4 37.Kd3 Nxb6 38.Nxa5 Nxa4 39. Nxc6.

  Honza Cervenka: <Chessical> Yes, you are right. White could liquidate all Qs Pawns in this way and it would save him as the ending of K+N+3P with doubled f-Pawn against K+N+2P looks drawish.
