Should be happy to still be drawing the game after it mind :) Those sorts of 'pure' blunders are often fatal, even in good positions.

You gave up a piece for no real reason, and then you lost. There's not really an awful lot more to say.

I would suspect once the Knight reached d4, that Black is doing well. That it was the time to bail out and seek a draw by Rxd4 would be tempting, although giving back a material advantage is always a difficult decision to take,

For some strange reason, Draw was agreed.
It was after your post that I noticed she was acctually winning! I think she herself missed Ra1.

Bronstein used to say "talk to your pieces". In this case, ask the White square Bishop how it felt being incarcerated on c8. But it eventually escaped and then Black was allowed to be better. I think your own notes indicate that you missed wins in the ending. Trading Bishop for Knight should result in the Rook and pawn ending being winning.

It's in at least one of his published works, probably 200 Open Games.
