  fredthebear: White's knight travels half way around the world to take out a bishop. Shortly later on the same square, 25.Bf6 blockade seems to be the unheralded game breaker for White. It becomes a bishops of opposite colors ending, which tends to be drawish. In this case, Black has a bad bishop and White has the more active ending.

My question is... Why did Black use such a method to exchange queens? Black was apparently playing for a draw and nothing more. A pair of doubled pawns don't bode well in the endgame.
