    There is no way id let that end in a draw if i had two pawns and a bishop left. The bishop cant cover the corner but i can bring my king into play and advance a pawn.

     if you bring your king in game you will lock his king on h1 square. This is stalemate. It's draw. You can have 4 pawn on h square. If white king keeps control under h1 square and your bishop is white-square it's draw without any options. Whatever you do enemy's king keeps going back and forth h1-g2 till you lock him in h1 square.

    but in this case, does it really count as DRAW ?

    two pawns and a Bishop against white king, this is something like suiside !


    Black wuold need a light squaresd bishop to queen a pawn. White can keep his king there keeping the black king away. It is a draw

    asinine! Give up a bishop and all hope for even a DRAW!!

    Idiot. Have you even read the thread? With the wrong Bishop, Black can't keep White's King from oscillating between g2 and h1 except by stalemating him - it's an easy draw for anyone who knows a thing about ending theory.

    I also read about it in the endgame course.
