  wwall: 33.Rxa6? is weak. White should take the knight and play 33.Bxe4 Rxe4 34.Rxa6 with better chances for a draw.

Instead of 33...Nf6, perhaps better is 33...Nd2 34.Rf2 Re1+ 35.Kh2 Nf1+ 36.Kg1 Ne3+ 37.Kh2 Rc1.

Instead of 36.Kg3?, perhaps better is 36.Rxe2 Rxe2 37.Bd1 Rxb2 38.a3.

After 37...Rc1, White could play on and try 38.Ba4 bxa4 39.Rxa4 Rc2+ 40.Kf3 Rxb2 41.Rxc4 Rxa2 42.Rc8+ Kh7 43.Rc7 Ra5 44.Rxf7 Rxf5 45.Ke2 and maybe a draw. Black has to still work hard for the win.
