A Bishops of Opposite Color Endgame Lesson from Steve Stoyko

Stoyko - Grasso, Hamilton Quads 2009
White to play. What is the winning plan?

FM Steve Stoyko showed me a nice game he played at the Hamilton Quads back in August. Though it offers some ideas on how to play the Colle-Zukertort, the game is chiefly of interest as an example of when "bishops of opposite color endings" can be won. You can play it over below or download the PGN file.
