  wwall: The losing move may be 35.Ra5+. White should be able to draw after 35.Kd2 b3 (35...Kxe4 36.Kc2) 36.Kc1 b2+ (36...Kxe4 37.Kb2) 37.Kb1.
Jan-29-19  PatrickGJr: 11.) Knic3 was probably the better move given, now that the other took is in the game and in one more move Knid5 can be played which is rather devastating no matter how you go about it given both C7,E5,F7,F6, B6,A1-B8,& D8- H4 diagonals are all weak with the 2x- of Rooks soon to add further emphasis to these points of critical vulnerability. Perhaps there is a bit of bias in me but, It'd be hard pressed for me not to say black is almost totally lost from a strategic objective sense especially given neither rook nor the knight upon h6 is really contributing in the game, with the queen left upon protection duty. And the other knight needing support from other pieces to make a more so meaningful coordinated pleasurable influence in the game.
