Hiarcs just lost against Boot. It's endgame play is very bad. It played with it rook back and forth loosing tempo and allowed Boot for counter chances...

You must have seen a completely different game. The endgame was always lost and Hiarcs already had to sac a piece to no avail.
May be you mean the middlegame? Booot simply had a strong K-side attack with h4-h5! which led to a won endgame and the counterplay
on the Q-side by Hiarcs was too slow...

Edit: I guess 21...c4?! is too slow and leaves not enough counterplay.
