Double Excelsior
Compiled by Domdaniel
--*--

Both sides send a pawn on an early excursion, capturing their way simultaneously to promotion and a four-Queen game ... several occur in a theoretical Meran line (9.e4 b4 10.e5 bxc3 11.exf6 cxb2 12.fxg7 bxa1Q 13.gxh8Q) but other routes exist, such as mine in an English: e4xf5xe6xd7xc8Q.

My contribution to the genre
G McCarthy vs M Kennefick, 1977 
(A23) English, Bremen System, Keres Variation, 22 moves, 1-0

It's not the Queen Pair, it's the initiative
Rosenberg vs Tartakower, 1954 
(D47) Queen's Gambit Declined Semi-Slav, 19 moves, 0-1

The extra Queens don't last but the end is pretty
