  wwall: This game shouldn't have drawn after the final moves.

Instead of 21.Rd1?!, White wins a pawn with 21.Bxd7 Rad8 22.Bb5.

Instead of 24.Bc6, White can play 24.a4, threatening 25.Qxe4.

Instead of 36.a5?!, perhaps best is 36.d6 Rf3+ 37.Ke2 Kxd6 38.Bxe4 Ra3 39.Bxh7 Rxa4 40.Bd3, which looks like a draw.

If 37...Rb3, 38.Kd1 should be OK for White.

38...g5?? (Black should try 38...Rb3 first) 39.b6 wins for White.

39...Kd6?? loses to 40.b6! axb6 41.a7. Instead of 39...Kd6, 39...Ra3 looks good for Black.
