For a while, my chessboard was ablaze here (at least for me), but then I got BURNED! How did my valiant Icelandic opponent get the lead here? I have chess pyromania: an addiction to playing with fire when it comes to taking on higher players!
Basically it's because you pushed your passed pawn to its doom. It should've been held back and pushed perhaps later in the ending. Other than that I thought you played pretty well considering the huge rating gap
Yes, I thought you played some very good chess, Ladya!
Honestly, post title + rating made me expect much, much worse.
I think the biggest mistake is 30...Rdd8 ?. Although the game is probably lost at that point (White can double on the 7th no matter what Black plays) it is still a very bad idea. In rook endgames, activity is almost everything.
Of course there is a mate threat to counter, but ...Kf8 looks better (even if White plays Rb7 with the idea Ree7, and, again, Black is probably doomed).
