Mar-17-10  tommy boy: This incredible game deserves to be better known. If GOTD eventually I purpose puns like "Chaos AD" or "Queensryche":)
Oct-17-10  Naugh: Wow, Black's initiative makes White's Queens look unnecessray wood decorating the board. I kinda like that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: This game is surreal.

FTR, neither player was obligated to claim the draw after the repetition of moves had been satisfied.

Oct-26-10  scormus: Fun, I mean pun idea "I KID you not"

Yes, incredible but, I think, an actual game. Brings to mind the famous "Duel in the sun" (Boston, 1982).

Nov-03-10  hannahbelle: 3Q? terrifying...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Even if this game proves a fabrication, it still astounds the mind. I feel rather grateful for all of the blunders--really enliven the game, they do. A friend of mine in university was quite the advocate for 9.Bg5 vs. The Death Variation (he claimed that's how Swedish chess players label 7...Nc6--heaven knows if that's true). This game does illustrate why he liked it; White's Queen side assault does benefit from the tempi used by the Black Bishop, as well as Black's inability to play ...Nf6-d7 in some variations.

  al wazir: What stopped white from playing 41. Nxg3 ?
Nov-03-10  iamsheaf: How on earth did white lose this one ?

  Once: And when the game ended, with a cluster of onlookers crowded round the board, did both white and black slump back in the chairs, utterly exhausted by the quintuple queenery?

And when there were five queens on the board, perchance were three of them upside-down rooks?

And did Black swagger a little afterwards and say ... "actually I had it all figured out. It was mostly home preparation anyway."

Or maybe the two players were sworn enemies, mortal foes, like Sherlock Holmes and Moriarity, and they were absolutely fixated on ripping the other to pieces ...

Great game, as violent as a summer blockbuster. And who said chess was dull?

Nov-03-10  imreker: This game is too crazy to be true.
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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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
Nov-03-10  jmactas:

Really? 5 queens.

  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  holland oats: Dearly beloved/We are gathered here today/To get through this thing called "chess" (Let's Go Crazy)
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?
