  3. 2100 Defense!

lichess.org/GGy2CMx4

After messing up the move orders quite badly in the opening I was close to resigning around move 25. But lengthy and resilient defense eventually led to a draw. A complicated and back and forth game. Let me know what you think. Cheers!

If there's one thing @chessbrah youtube channel has taught me, it's NEVER HAVE A PASSIVE ROOK IN THE ENDGAME.

DUDE LOOK AT MOVE 30. THE FRICK ARE YOUR ROOKS DOING REEEEEEEe.

Sorry tho. Good game, very well played. Congratz!

Your 25...Kd6 was not the best: the king is better at c6 than at d6.
40 g4 would have won for white.

#2 his rooks are fine lol, I more than once fianchettoed my rook...

All good points, I was extremely dissatisfied about my rook position. As I said I almost resigned. It really took some patience not to resign, and getting rewarded with a draw made me wanna share the game!

@tpr The reason I played Kd6 was because I had planned Nd6 which would have solved most of my issues. Though I agree that considering his move in the game it would have been better to play Kd6.

It takes courage to give up bishop pair without any obvious compensation.

heck lucky. that too in a 5 5 game :D
