    naah he was better there. and also he is from finland which means you had no hope of outplaying him.

    White missed a finesse at move 28, Bxg7. If Bxc4, Bxh6, exposes the black king. The game would have taken a differant path after that.

    well, 1. ...Ra5 wins back a pawn after Qe2. i think you could have won this endgame despite down the pawn. your rooks would be much more active than his after moves like ...f5 and Rae5 doubling on the soon to open e file.
