  wwall: 92.Kg8?? and loses. White draws with 92.Kh8! since 92...Qxf7 is a stalemate.
Aug-26-10  YouRang: <wwall> Yes, interesting that Albin (no slouch) missed this fundamental drawing tactic.
May-04-18  Telemus: What a tragic end! But Albin did not only lose half a point.

This is the position before White's 80th move. Here he had a nice trick at hand: 80.♗e6 ♖c3 81.c7+ ♖xc7 82.♗e7+!

May-04-18  Telemus: And that is before White's 81th move:

Instead of 81.♗e6+? White wins with 81.♗c6+!

What's the difference? In both cases 81.. ♔xd6 82.c8=♕ b1=♕ 83.♕d7 ♔e5 should happen, and with 81.♗c6+ White has 84.♕e7+ winning the rook without losing the bishop.

Nov-01-18  Straclonoor: After 81 moves Lomonosov TB7 gives - draw 82.c8Q. Albin missed right way later.
Feb-07-19  Retireborn: What a horrific game this is. Personally I would have resigned after 49.Rxh4 (or even earlier!) As well as the wins pointed out by <Telemus>, White misses clear wins with 64.f7, 72.c6+, 77.f7 etc.

That Black even wins in the end is outrageous.

Feb-07-19  Granny O Doul: Horrendous indeed.
