I don't think there was a way to win this?
Could I have done better?
Quite pleased with a draw against a 1840, though..
On a quick glance, I like 38..Be5+ (because it instantly kicks the king back, keeps it out of your queen side's dark squares (except for a couple) for the rest of the game where your majority is so you can create a passer and win with the help of your king.) If you could promote the rook pawn, its promotion/queening square is dark so is also protected by your dark square bishop.
Looks like a draw there, Rooperi.
General tip: If you're looking to win in a OCB endgame, try to keep your pawns on the color of your opponents bishop.
Conversely, if your looking to draw, put your pawns on color of your own bishop.
It must be a draw, this is typical in opposite coulored bishop endgames.
Thank you for sharing. Gives us all an opportunity to learn. And congrats on the draw with the Class A player.
Yes, most of us know opcb endgames end in draws but of course we should also know they don't always.
