Pano drew that game unbelievable!

What a fluctuating game.

Pano was 2 pawns up in the queenless middlegame, though Rad managed to block it up a bit.

Rad sacced a third pawn in an effort yo get counterplay.

Pano sacced the exchange to have 4(!) pawns for the ex.

Pano played a disastrous king move, though he may have had a way out with Ne2.

Rad missed about 3 forced mates, though eventually was a rook ahead.

Missed how Pano drew a rook down.

How do I load a diagram?
