The game looks very level.
24. Bb1 Ne7 25. e4 fxe4 26. Rxe4 Nc6 27. Qe3 Qd6 28. Re1 b6 29. g3 Nd4.

White has taken a grip on the e-file but Black has put a knight on d4.
30. Re5. White would prefer to have his queen on the b1-h7, with the bishop.
30...Rdf8 31. Qd3 g6 32. Rd5 Qc7 33. Ree5 Qc8.

White seems to have made progress.
34. Kg2 Qb7 35. Qe4 Nf5 36. Bd3 Nd6.

Play has become double-edged!
37. Re7 Qc6 38. Qe5 Nf7.

39. Qc7? Probably time trouble. Stockfish says that 39. Qe2 wins.
39...Qxc7 40. Rxc7... Now it is a draw.

  NM JRousselle: 53 Ke6 looks very strong, perhaps winning. An indirect trade of knight for bishop would have removed Black's ability to draw endings where White has the "wrong" colored bishop and rook's pawn.
