I thought this was bonkers

 Everyone loves a good second half comeback, especially if it is from a team or player you support. Here is an example from the Asian Continental where White (GM Temur Kuybokarov) looked dead lost for quite a while, before recovering to win at the death. It does of course help to have a pawn on the 7th rank quite early in the game, but that can only help you so far. Finding a way to stay in the game is the other half of the equation.
