How Dominguez won a bishop endgame

Hello dear friends.
Yesterday, I was impressed with Dominguez's victory over Caruana. I decided to analyze the endgame a bit. Hopefully it will be interesting.

Всем привет!
Вчера я был впечатлен победой Домингеса над Каруаной. Решил вот немного проанализировать эндшпиль. Надеюсь это будет интересно.
 

All games of the round 4.

    Круто! Посмотрел и вспомнилась поговорка: - Я думал, что плохо играю, а оказалось, что совсем не умею)))

    Вообще логично.
    У черных ферзь активный , у белых - ничего не делает.
    Как иначе перевести ладью f1 на линию a? 
    А если белые своего ферзя отправляют на ферзевый - можно пропустить контригру g7-g5-g4

    Что-то мне 20-й ход белых непонятен. Зачем было менять ферзей?

    LikeTheLake - thanks for asking.
    60... Bg7 was stronger move then Kb7. It a bit tricky how white could breake through in this line.
    But they could! I added variation to the diagramm!

    @LikeTheLake: If 60 .. Bb7 then 61 Bxh4. The black bishop is guarding two pawns at the same time, both of which are under attack from the white bishop.

    Thank you for the article.  Why not 60...Bg7    ?
    White capturing black pawn at d4 trading bishops does not seem to help to white to advance the King.  Answer may be easy for some of you, thanks for your patience.

    The live comentators explained why the endgame was won by White and then said goodbye, but there was a long way ahead to the actual win. Great technique by the Cuban grandmaster, thank you Stepan for the analysis!
