Board 2: A very strange draw

I honestly don't understand this game!  I think Black was more or less OK after 10...Qa5, but that Felecan probably overestimated White's "primitive" mating attack: 14...fxg6 seems playable.  It's not clear that White is winning the final position, but in the final position, White seems to have the choice between a pleasant middle game and a a pleasant endgame.

Florin Felecan saves a very iffy position: good news for the home team!
