Did I have a chance to draw here?

    I just played this game in a tournament in the 7th round and I lost. Qc6 was a mistake, since I left my a6 pawn isolated and that seems to have cost me the game (I wanted to simplify because calculating with the queens on the board is pretty hard in time trouble) After the queen exchange did I have any chance to draw?

    Hello!

    Tough ending. White's bishop is clearly very strong (definitely much better than the knight), and your pawn structure is bad.

    You should probably look for improvements in the earlier phases. An easy one would be 15.. f6. (you played 16.. f6 - just a small move order trick, by playing f6 first you would inflict a weak c-pawn if he replied Nd3 as in the game)
