Another terrible blunder by former world champion at Candidates'

Round 10 of Candidates' was marked with only one decisive game: Peter Svidler defeated Vladimir Kramnik.  

As the day before yesterday, Kramnik lost due to one-move blunder.  


Kramnik, "White managed to gain big advantage and I already started looking for a forced win. It seemed to me I found it, otherwise I would of course play 32.Nd4..."
32...Bxh2+ 33.Kxh2 Qxf1 White's position is practically hopeless. Kramnik tried to resist but soon he was forced to resign.  

"I blunder... I don't know why. I played well today and had an advantage. And then I again made one-move blunder. That might be weariness, but I can't get why, I'm feeling okay overall..."
