Nov-03-10  kellmano: Totally nuts.

You've gotta love the Kings Indian. Black looks busted all game, then goes a queen down and still the king is unthreatened in its formation of bishop, rook and pawn.

  Sastre: <al wazir: What stopped white from playing 41. Nxg3 ?> 41...fxg3+ 42.Ke3 Bg5+ 43.Kd3 Qxg2 44.Qc2 Qxf3+ 45.Kc4 Bxc1 46.Qxc1 Qxe4+ looks good for Black.
Nov-03-10  sfm: "Striking belov..."
Nov-03-10  goodevans: This guy Belov has contributed some interesting losses to the database, including a couple of nice miniatures. Thanks, Belov.

  The HeavenSmile: I get the impression that after 28...Qg5 black either sensed a win or calculated that he was lost and went for an all out attack. No one in their right mind would enter into an endgame against two queens

  kevin86: This game had everything! Five queens,including a long period of three queens;it also had a threefold repititititition which neither player claimed.
Nov-03-10  pers0n: this game was certainly worthy of being game of the day. lots of queens, very entertaining.

  Rob Morrison: This game is incredible! I suspect it really did happen. They might both have been, say, 2150 players, not good enough to be well-known but good enough to create this amazing battle. For sure there were lots of mistakes, particularly by white, who seemed to lose his head in trying to make his two queens accomplish something.
Nov-03-10  WhiteRook48: this couldn't be a crazier game

  al wazir: <Sastre: 41...fxg3+> 42.Ke2 Qxg2+ 43. Kd1 Bg5 (43...Qf3+ 44. Qe2) 44. Rc2. Now what?
Nov-03-10  bgkuzzy: this is an omg
Nov-03-10  James Bowman: Some sort of recreational chemistry was involved, I felt like white was the best player on blacks team and vice verca. White passed on several opportunities to reduce material and increase his advantage but he had other plans and I use the term loosely.

Fun yes instructive only as a bad example I suppose.

Nov-03-10  picard: wasnt there a 3 fold repetition in there? (moves 34-37) the position after move 34 repeats 3 times. what am i missing?

  Phony Benoni: <picard> You're right; there was a triple repetition in there. But in most tournaments, the draw has to be claimed by the players themselves; if they don't claim when the repeated position is on the board, the game continues.

It's just possible the time control was at move 40, and they were in time pressure, though I can't imagine why.

By the way, I think the repetition is an argument in favor of the authenticity of the game. Were it all invented, there would be no reason to have the repetition.

  Sastre: <al wazir: <Sastre: 41...fxg3+> 42.Ke2 Qxg2+ 43. Kd1> 43...Rxf3 44.Qe2 Rf2 is winning for Black.
Feb-12-11  Stjef: It seems that 56. - Qa5+ just wins a piece?! Not that I blame the players for missing a few things along the line in this kind of game..
Nov-02-13  chesswar1000: I had no idea what was going on until move 82.
Nov-03-13  hcgflynn: there are lots and lots of moves i don't get in this game.
Nov-12-13  chesswar1000: It oficially turns into a nuclear war at 32.

<Stjef>,
Certainly does. Play might continue 57. ♔e2 ♕xd8 58. ♕cc8 ♕e7, and White has very few entrance points into the Black position for his Queens - at the moment they look like glorified bishops. Maybe pushing the passed a-pawn might be a winning plan?

  Richard Taylor: Crazy game. Impossible to see who was better (without taking a lot of time and using a computer) when but well played by both I suppose!
