Charge of the pawn brigade

From the early rounds of the 2013 European Championship comes the following wild encounter. By move 22 Black has 3 pawns on the 6th rank and Whites position looks decidedly scary. However like the Charge of the Light Brigade, it was more for show than anything else, and White soon eliminates them. However the fun then continues with White chasing the Black king around the board, before the game eventually ends in a draw.
