Missed win for Fairuz Hammizah

Browsing through the Malaysian Women Master blog, saw this game , Fairuz Hammizah - Tan Li Ting

White played 41. a4 b6 and the game was drawn.

A common tactical theme in such positions with double bishops is to play 1. b6! fixing the b7 pawn. White will win the b7 pawn with Bc8. Black must capture 1...Bxb6 2. Bxg5+ followed by Bb7 Bc8 and the two bishops plus passed pawn will ensure white wins
