Anna Rudolf had a tough weekend in February losing two games in the TCh-FIN. Here is her round 11 game. Black maneuvered for a long time trying to make something with the bishop pair and then eventually ground out an opposite color B-B ending.

Black conceded the bishop pair early and then gave up a pawn. White was ruthless in the technical phase and played a model game.
