  Mateo: Ulf Andersson or the art to get something out of nothing.

The fact is that White missed a clear advantage on move 35 (after 34... Ke8?). Instead of 35. Na5?!, much better was 35. Nc5! (with the threat 36. Na6) Qb8 36. Qa4 (threatening c7) Qc8 37. Nd3 Bd6 38. Nb4. If 38... Bb4 39. c7 Ke7 40. Qb4 Kd7 41. Qa4 Kc7 42. Qf4, winning the f7 pawn.

On move 41, Black could have drawn. 41... Qe4 42. f3 Qd4 43. Nd5 Ke6 44. Nf4 Kd7 45. Qb5 Kc8 46. Nd5 Qd2 47. Kh3 Qh6 48. Kg2 Qd2.

After Black missed this opportunity, Andersson showed his art of getting something out of nothing! 53... Qb4?? was a big blunder, losing a pawn.
