QThee Queen is MEAN to Fredthebear Volume Two!!
Compiled by fredthebear

More home wreckers by and to the queen, especially by the opposing queen. Many of these are queen sacrifices on the way to checkmate, but not always. Occasionally, it's a case of thievery to remove the guard, or a race of queens to see which can do the most damage, or one queen forces the withdrawal of the other queen into a helpless position, etc. Sometimes she gets caught in the act!

Here's a link to some fabulous chess brilliancies:
