  kevinatcausa: Excellent pun, and fun game. Nifty how the first two Queens both sacrifice themselves to enable their successors.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Now *this* is a magnificent pun. Brings back happy memories of the good old days, watching Johnny Heminges play Falstaff at the old Globe.

Sep-03-09  newzild: White was lucky to get out of this one with his bollies still swinging.
Sep-03-09  David2009: What a disappointment! After the brilliant pun I expected to see at least two Black ladies on the board at once :) <kevinatcausa: Excellent pun, and fun game.> Yes: the game (with its three separate Black queens) compensates.
Sep-03-09  Abdooss: Windsor!

  kevin86: Nice pun and punny game;no matter how many times black queens,it's still Q vs two rooks.
Sep-03-09  pawneetribe: This tie has a Windsor knot
Sep-03-09  sleepyirv: really outdid themselves with this pun. Bravo!
Sep-03-09  WhiteRook48: Q vs RR ending twice
Sep-03-09  tdnn72: Does white not win if he goes 19. f6 ?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <tdnn72's> suggestion is pretty good. I think Black has to play 19...Qf8 in reply.
Sep-07-09  tdnn72: absolutely Qf8 is the only reply, but after many different moves i see white with a winning position or mate

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <tdnn72>, there are some resources for Black in this position, and I don't think we can underrate his chances. 19.f6 might be best, but it does carry one disadvantage: White no longer has significant pressure on e6. Black might even take advantage of the g-file after either fxg7 or ...gxf6 and ...Qg7.

But I still like White, esp. if he can force ...g7-g6, which leaves Black's major pieces in a tangle.

Jun-17-10  Karpovian maneuver: i think white should play 19.Nd5!...try analzye it..quite long,but white is winning in the endgame..
