    Black wins.
    There are more options (pushing directly also works)

    Wanna play a set piece game?

    g5 and then activate your rook. Don't worry about his a pawn. It's actually helping you by blocking you only (after g5) weak pawn. His last move Rg4 was fairly bad and allows you to march easier. His rook is funning out of good squares. Why draw when you're up two pawns (really closer to three).

    Agreed - Black has a won game. g5 and then try to swop off rooks. d4's a good posting for your rook. He'll avoid the swop, so you can push his rook around into increasingly bad positions, which can be fun.

    This is why studying endgames is very important

    What is the point of being up two pawns and having passed pawns if you don't know how to use them?

    Take the time to learn everything from Q+K v K to rook and pawn endgames.

    Not only will you win games like the one you posted, but you can steer your games into endgames that you know you can win.

    don't feel bad about this game because you learned something. Any game that teaches you something is a win!

    The two bishops should win generally

    They can be in more places and threaten a lot of skewers and pins

    I got into an endgame today with R+N+2p+K vs. 2B+2p+K and it seemed like a clear draw until he blundered a bishop.
