  GrahamClayton: Two bishops v 2 pawns must be a very rare ending! White's problem is that if he sacrifices a Bishop for one of Black's pawns, he has insufficient material to checkmate

74.Bc6 was an error. White had a better chance with 74. Kf7 h3 75. Bc6 h3 76. Bg2

  wwall: White should have won this. Perhaps Black's mistake was 59...c2. Better may be 59...Rf3, and if 60.Bc4+ Kh7 (not 60...Kh8 61.f7 c2 62.Bd2) 61.f7 c2 62.Bd2 Kg6 and 63...Rxf7. Black now may be winning.

Instead of 63.Kd6, best may be 63.Bd5. Where does the rook go? If 63...Rf5, then 64.Bc3+ Kh7 65.Be4 wins. If 63...Rf2 (or Rf1), then 64.Bc3+ Kh7 65.Be4+ Rf5 66.Bxf5 mate.
