Compare the ending of this game with the ending of I Kurnosov vs Carlsen, 2012 and tell me what you see.

  louispaulsen88888888: Yes it seems like getting the Kt trapped with 118.Kt-R4? was the loser. The king should stay around the base of his pawn chain watching out for knight sacs while the knight should have enough squares to bounce around on. But who can blame white for a slip on move 118; such a long game is tiring.
