BLACK TO MOVE
I really need to work on keeping my head in the game for the ENTIRE game, not just half. Of course time pressure was a factor.
Position #2. INteresting position.
Black is a passed pawn to the good but has a slightly worse minor piece (short range knight vrs whites bishop) and his rook is seriously out of play. His king is more involved in the endgame.
White has the better minor piece and rook, but his king needs to become useful. g4 kicking the knight and allowing Rf6+ looks appealing but may well be one of those moves my eye is drawn to but doesn't really accomplish anything useful.
I think black has a winning advantage but it is hard to realize. I'm going to go back through the whole game, then review position 1 before returning to this.
Edit 1: I can't seem to find this in your game... the white rook is in the wrong spot, I think it should be on b8? ala move 36.
Sadly the move I like best is Nh6 allowing for Rf4 and if an immediate Rf6+ then Ke7 holding the pawn and denying the rook the seventh rank while preparing to redeploy the knight once the rook comes over. I expect
Nh6, Rf6+, Ke7, g4, Rd4/Nf7 (I"m not sure which is best).
