  fredthebear: Black's sacrifice (Queen for Bishop and Rook) works out better than White's sacrifice (Bishop for two pawns out of the King's shield).

At first, I wondered why White took so long to capture the en prise Black bishops, but the delays seem to be the correct decision upon further inspection. (Playing the "obvious move" will get a person beat in chess.)

For example, if 38.cxBb6+ Kxb6+ allows 39...Bxb5. Now Black has a passed pawn easily protected. The way White plays in the game saves herself the crucial b-pawn to block Black's path and get the draw.
