  kevin86: right,iron m,white blunders away his queen. How often does a player have a Q + N vs a Q -and lose!
Jul-19-04  rochade18: Wow what a patzer!! Milos is a strong player!
Sep-16-04  aw1988: So is Nigel Short. 121...Re6??
Dec-10-05  sucaba: <kevin>: How often does a player have a ♕ + ♘ vs a ♕ -and lose!

According to the endgame-explorer J Bednarich vs M Scacco, 2001 is the only other example in this database.

  whiteshark: Bareev's semi-final against Brazilian Gilberto Milos, meanwhile, was shorter since it ended after the <second quickplay play-off game <(15 minutes each plus 10 seconds per move)>>, but even more dramatic. The big incident took place at the end of the first quickplay game when Milos reached an ending with queen and knight against queen. This is generally a draw though far from fun to defend at speed. However, after just a couple of moves Milos left his king and queen on the same rank (king e7 queen b7): allowing Bareev the deadly skewer 79...Qd3-h7+ and victory soon thereafter!

Nov-18-10  Tigranny: Nd5?? That results in a skewer giving up the queen.
Jan-12-15  Gottschalk: Milos could have won
