Triple pawns against two bishops

"Chess is 99% tactics" is a quote attributed to Richard Teichmann. Of course as with any such proclamation, your mileage may vary, depending on the road you travel. But I can't help showing the following game where a player with isolated tripled pawns beats a player with the bishop pair (and in this case, consisting of 2 extra bishops!).
