Oct-10-11  ozmikey: Nice bishop ending with a cute trick to decide things. Although White is obviously better once the queens come off, I'm not sure that it should have been enough to win; 22...c5 looks more logical to start with, preventing White's king from breaking through in the centre once and for all, and once Black's last chance to play ...f6 safely disappears (25...Kg6 is probably better to keep that option open; in the game after 27. Bd1! Black has to forestall Bb3(+) and Bd5), there doesn't appear to be any way to stop the g4-g5-h4-h5-h6-Bh5-g6 plan without allowing the White king in.

  plang: In the ending Black's strategy of putting his pawns on light squares seems peculiar. 34 Kc3 was very clever preparing 40 Kd4 with zugzwang.
