  0ZeR0: Simply a beautiful game by the champ.
Jul-19-21  Ulhumbrus: The commentators - one of them was GM Fressinet - indicated that on 14 Nd5 the knight could be undermined by ...f5 and that White lacked the one tempo for development that he needed in order to gain safety for his king and keep his pawn.

In other words the evaluation of the position is that Black's bishop pair and the exposure of White's game gives Black too much for the pawn instead of too little.

Jul-21-21  GlennOliver: Actually winning this endgame (without the aid of silicon) is extremely difficult for us mere chess mortals.

Each step has the possibility of error, allowing devolution into a trivial draw via bishops of opposite colour.
