This was an easily drawn BOOC ending... right?
Compiled by SwitchingQuylthulg
--*--

Endings with bishops of opposite colors aren't always as drawish as their reputation. The more active side often has surprising chances. And even when they really are drawish, it's still possible even for strong masters to blunder them away.

Contributions are welcome.
