Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-20  nummerzwei: Fixing the g4-pawn with 43...h6 and 44...g5 gives a fairly easy win, even in a blitz game.

As Ludek Pachman pointed out in <Endspielpraxis im Schach>, a remarkable feature of positions with rook vs bishop and two pawns each on the same wing is that they are no less drawish than those with only one pawn each. Conversely, as far as decisive positions are concerned, the stronger side should not be afraid to exchange pawns when that leads to a clear cut win.
