Going for perpetual checks, but didn't come through. 62.Qd8 Ng8 62...Qxe3 63.Qe7+ Kg8 when we analysed after the game, he thought this is enough for me to draw. Both of us in serious time trouble by now. I missed this cause, i had thought my king need to go either h6 or h8 which gave him discovered check! 64.Bf3 Fritz has another say :) 64...Qxf4+ 65.g3+- 63.Qxe8 Qxe3 64.Qd7+ Kh8 65.Nf7+ Kg7 66.Ng5+ Ne7 67.Qd6 1–0
