Apr-09-06  Tariqov: Good played Bishop ending
Premium Chessgames Member
  zydeco: As white, Ivkov, for some reason, liked to play the Queen's Indian, and exchange quickly into a featureless endgame. Here, his position falls apart incredibly quickly.

Playing 30....f5+ before .....Rxc1 is an important finesse - it forces the white king to the f-file, instead of the d-file, and black's king takes d5.

Over the next few moves, white can't play Ke3-d3 as he would like to, because of ....Bd4+ forcing the king back to f3. Instead, Ivkov tries a convoluted bishop maneuver: Bg5-d8-a5, but black has virtually a forced win.

Maybe white should just defend passively with 34.e3 and 35.Ke2 and keep the king in front of the c-pawn.
