They say loose pieces drop off, but you still have to spot them.

Black starts with <28...Rc1+>. Now 29.Bd1 is possible, but 29...Bg5 threatens 30...Nxg2 and Bladk wins a pawn. That not being easy to stop, White tried the more obvious <29.Rd1>.

Now Black snatched a pawn with <29...Bxd4>. If 30.Bxd4 Ne2+ 31.Kf1 Rxd1+ and now after either 32.Bxd1 Nxd4 or 32.Kxe2 Rxd4 the loose bishop drops off.

So instead <30.Rxc1 Ne2+ 31.Kf1 Nxc1 32.Bxd4 Nxb3>, and the other loose bishop drops off!

Which proves that bishops should not go in for loose living.
