  ajk68: White appears to play for the draw around move 56. A lot of wasted time letting black improve his position. At move 64 white seems to change tack trying to blow the position open - recklessly. Maybe white missed the follow up Qh4!

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Black's attack proceeded more slowly than an onrushing hoard of turtles, but seemed all the more inevitable for its slowness. 64.d5 doesn't look good to me, either. Patience did triumph in this game.

  patzer2: <An Englishman> Stockfish 8 agrees with your assessment of 64. d5?! allowing 64...Bxd5 (-0.86 @ 31 depth.)

Instead 64. Qd2 64.Qd2 Qb4 65.Bc3 Qb8 66.Be4 Bd5 67.Bd3 Kd7 68.Bb2 Nb4 69.Be2 f6 70.Bc3 Nc6 71.Qd3 Ne7 72.Bb2 Bc6 73.Bd1 Bd5 74.Be2 = (0.00 @ 31 depth) appears to hold it dead level.
