Aug-21-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Anyone likes four queens on board at move 7? I certainly don't mind. :)
Aug-21-05  Happypuppet: 23... Kh6 24. Nf7+ Qxf7 25. Qg5#

East German championship in 1975... that explains everything. Only crazy communists could play a game like this. =P

Aug-21-05  dac1990:, I don't think there's another game in the database like this.
Oct-03-06  positionalgenius: One word:whoa.
Dec-24-06  Kukka: Probably an unique game indeed. It's unfortunate that the move 5 d4 doesn't really make objective sense-but one can understand these guys; they found a simple way to leave their names in chess history.

  Phony Benoni: It's usually a bad idea to develop your queen too early, when she can be harassed by developing minor pieces. Black's problem here is that he had two queens for White to attack with tempo!
Aug-09-07  BAG: I could see this happening with two drunk people on yahoo chess but at this level it seems suspect.

  GrahamClayton: White's new Queen sits in hibernation for 16 moves before making a decisive check.

Also, why didn't White play 19.♖e4+
It appears that 19..de4 wins the Knight, for if it moves Black can play 20...♕d1#. However, 19...de4 20.♕e2 pins the Black e-pawn.

Feb-23-09  WhiteRook48: 4 Queens by move 7?! Odd
Sep-17-09  WhiteRook48: also why white didn't play 8 Qxh7 I have no idea

  OBIT: The game J Rudd vs N Krithika Pon, 2011 almost gets to the same four queens position, except Black proves himself to be the ultimate party pooper by playing 6...Bxg7 instead of queening the pawn. Alas, it appears his move is superior, as after 7. Bxb2 c5 8. Nf3 Nc6 9. Qd2 cxd4 10. O-O-O e5 Black is up a healthy pawn.
