Oct-12-15  ninja warrior: nice game. :)
Oct-12-15  Mehem: Why didn't Ivanchuk play such an obvious move like 68... Qf3+ endlessly checking the white king?
Oct-12-15  druukee: Planet Carlsen! As for 68...Qf3+, the series of checks aren't endless.

  Marmot PFL: Glance at the database says the bishop is one of the best for winning these endings. In fact two rook pawns would give fewer winning chances than one bishop pawn.
Oct-13-15  Mating Net: <Glance at the database says the bishop is one of the best for winning these endings.> Spot on <Marmot PFL> the Bishop pawn is the ideal pawn to possess in this endgame.
