A nice game - Tiger v Ikeda

Got caught up with FIDE Anti-Cheating work last night, meaning I missed a blog post. But I awoke this morning to see the following battle from the current Politiken Cup. The guy with one of the coolest names in chess Tiger Hilarp-Persson up against one of the coolest guys in Australian chess, Junta Ikeda.
The game looked to contain trademark play from both sides, with Tiger sacrificing a piece for lots of pawns and play, while Ikeda kept finding tricky moves in the materially unbalanced ending. Eventually Ikeda found a nice way to draw, sacrificing his last piece for a Bishop and wrong coloured rook pawn ending.
