  NM JRousselle: This is an instructive ending.

I'm surprised there are no comments on it.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: With help from The Computer I figured out that The Losing Move was 46 f7. After 46 Nd6 black cannot take the f-pawn without getting steered into a bishop-and-wrong-RP ending.

  NM JRousselle: What is interesting is how the player with the 2 bishops has all the chances. It would appear they were playing for 2 possible results (draw, Black win).
Apr-21-21  SChesshevsky: Hard to tell if Menchik risked a loss by pushing for an advantage or if she just misplayed the ending.

Guessing after 29...Bc8, Menchik probably saw likely drawing possibilities but decided to go for more.
