  patzer2: White makes a mistake with 25. Ng3?, missing the win 25.Rh7! Rad8 26.Rxh6 Kg7 27.Rc6 .

A second error with 27.f5? costs White a draw, which he could have had after 27.Rxh6! Rxc2 28.Nf5 Rxb2 29.Rh8+ Kf7 30.Rh7+ Kg8 31.Rxc7 Rxa2 32.Nh6+ Kh8 33.Nf7+ Kg8 34.Nh6+ Kh8 (34...Kf8 35.Rf7#) 35.Nf7+ Kg8 36.Nh6= (draw by threefold repetition).
