  fredthebear: In the final position, 35...Kh7 is all but forced. Then White forces the exchange of queens with the forking check 36.Qd3+. This leaves White with an easily won King and Pawns ending.
Mar-18-17  RandomVisitor: 17...Ne4 "Maroczy - A blunder which loses two pawns, but black is already in trouble and we cannot find a move to save the game."

What about, after 18.Bxe7 Rxe7 19.f3, 19...Nc5:
