37...Bc5??? Horrible blunder by a player that rarely makes mistakes like this. Rf7 was the move and the best white has is a perpetual.

Le played <37...Bc5??> which loses immediately.

He should have played <37...Rf7!> instead and the game should have ended in a draw by repetition.

37...Rf7 38.Nf4+ Kg7 39.Nh5+ Kg8 40.Qe8+ Rf8 41.Qg6+ Kh8 42.Qxh6+ Kg8
