  Phony Benoni: If you're referring to <71.Rc5> in this position:

that was hardly a blunder; White was completely lost anyway. For instance, 71.Kc7 (Ke7) Rxd7+ followed by promoting the h-pawn, or 71.Rc8 h2 72.Rxd8 Nf7+ 73.Kc7 Nxd8 74.Kxd8 h1Q, and Black wins routinely.

The game seems to have turned around on White's 58th move in this situation:

White's <58.Rfxf4> was shown to be a wrong rook blunder after <58...Nh5>. Had White played the correct 58.Rexf4, he could have answered with 59.Rxf5 in perfect safety; in the game, 59.Rxf5 would allow 59...gxf5 forking queen and the rook on e4 that hadn't gotten out of the way.
