    @cofail, I probably did yes, I got a bit excited and thought the pawn ending was actually a win for me lookingat it for about 5 minutes. I was concerned though that if I went after the queenside pawns with my bish, his knight and king would be perfectly placed to trap it after he plays Nd7. So I tried the K+P ending. Another thing I seem to remember was that I had about 15minutes left to get to 40 moves when he played Kd7, so I think I just went for the simpler option and hop that I was better.

    In the second game, perhaps you would have had more chances in the B v N endgame rather than the K+P ending, particuarly if you could have played a4, fixing his pawns onm dark squares.
