  Honza Cervenka: This endgame (K+Q+(N)P vs K+Q) is quite hard to handle even for GMs. Naiditsch had draw in his hands till the move 73 but his situation was very difficult there. In fact only 73...Qd1+ and 73...Qb6 lead to draw after perfect play while 73...Qa1+ loses though the win for white requires very subtle and precise play for a long time against the best defence of black. The best practical chance of black was 75...Ke5 or 75...Kd5 with tablebase win of white in 81 moves. 75...Qg2 was a blunder after which white wins immediately without any effort forcing trade of Queens in 2 moves with elementary won K+P vs K ending.
