+/= (0.44 ++) Depth: 9 00:00:00 13kN
+/- (1.01) Depth: 29 00:01:14 234mN
The end of the variation white is a pawn up with different color bishops. We cannot trust the absolute score of these long variations with a lot of pruning, particularly when you went into an endgame and the scores are within +/- 1 pawn. White has an advantage, but we can hardly say that black move was a blunder.
