  Mateo: A strange ending in the exchange variation of the Ruy Lopez.

Bruzon got a small advantage but on move 30, he went for complicated play with 30... h5?!, instead of 30... Rf6, keeping the pressure.

33. Nf2?! was not the best. Rohl should have played 33. Rg6, and Bruzon would have to demonstrate that his sac of a pawn was correct.

The Rook ending was in Bruzon's favour, despite the fact White got a small material advantage. 42. e5 ? should have lost quickly, since Bruzon could have end the game with 42... b4 (instead of 42... Kb7) 43. Ra7 Kc6 44. e6 b3 45. e7 Re4, Black wins. White should have played 42. Kf2 to go the queenside with the King to stop the passed pawns.

44. e6? is the final mistake. Better 44. Rd6 Kb6 45. Rd5 Kc5 46. Ra6, as the White Rook must stay behind the pawns. Bruzon still has winning chances, but it would have been a much harder task.
