sea otter: 07. Mariee Sioux - Twin Song
Oct-25-16 Kenneth S Rogoff
OhioChessFan: <saff: And I think Bill Clinton was a great president. You know, you look at the country then. The economy was doing great. Look at what happened during the Clinton years. I mean we had no war, the economy was doing great, ...
Oct-25-16 C Lutz vs Adams, 1994
dhotts: 23. Nf5! is a beautiful move
Oct-25-16 Joker (Computer)
AylerKupp: I know that we're supposed to refrain from political jokes but I recently bought a purple baseball cap that says "Make America Grape Again". Just wanted to share.
Oct-25-16 Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1932
Retireborn: Here are the remaining moves as given in Chessbase Big Database 2002: 57.Rf6 Kg7 58.b4 Rf2+ 59.Kb1 Rf3 60.Rb6 Rxf4 61.Rxb5 Rf5 62.Rb7+ Kf8 63.Rxh7 Rxe5 64.Ra7 Rxg5 65.Rxa4 Ke7 66.Kb2 Kd7 67.Ra6 Rg3 68.b5 Kc7 69.Rc6+ Kb7 70.a4 Ka7 ...
Oct-25-16 Jeremy Lim
plang: <HeMateMe: <people are assuming it will be Warriors-Cavaliers > It's been like that before. In the 80s people just KNEW that Boston and LA would be in the finals,> I am not sure there has been a time in recent history when the ...
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs I A Zybin, 1900
Christoforus Polacco: Fine game of Chigorin the Great !
Oct-25-16 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1986
LA MAN: Yes KASPAROV played above his skill in this one. As I say The Man Plays The Game. His hair cutter who was his neighbor cut my hair and she had much good things to say about him.
Oct-25-16 Spassky vs Geller, 1959
HeMateMe: Amazing game. I think Gellar should have played on a bit and hoped for a blunder by white.
Oct-25-16 L Zaid vs Kasparov, 1977
MrJafari: Why not 20.♗xb4 ?
Oct-25-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016)
HeMateMe: <Anyone going to the match?> maybe you could sell it on craigs list or Ebay, or yahoo acution?
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs Allies, 1900
Christoforus Polacco: 19....b5 ?
Oct-25-16 Najdorf vs Denker, 1996
maxi: Fascinating move 12.c5.
Oct-25-16 Biographer Bistro
MissScarlett: <Now there is a tournament table with an entry of 10053 that says "Moscow" with 100 games associated with it.> You lost me. What if there are already ten tournaments with the Event field designated 'Moscow' or a thousand ...
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs Chizh, 1899
Christoforus Polacco: Maybe a some better is 30... Re7
Oct-25-16 N Pogonina vs Kosteniuk, 2016
Whitehat1963: How silly of me. White blocks the bishop's access to g8 with her knight. That's it.
Oct-25-16 Matafia Scheinberg
hemy: <WannaBe> I updated it as you advised.
Oct-25-16 Z Sturua vs Kasparov, 1976
MrJafari: @GumboGambit: Thank you for your additional comment...
Oct-25-16 Odd Lie
WannaBe: Went into a pawn shop, all they had was rooks.
Oct-25-16 Evgeny Gik
Beholder: RIP IM Gik. Died Oct 24, 2016.
Oct-25-16 Spassky vs Karpov, 1982
Petrosianic: <Howard: First, I've never heard any claims about Fischer's 11-0 score being "suspicious" in any way. It may have been somewhat of a fluke, but Fischer probably did it far and square.> That could be because you hang mostly ...
Oct-25-16 Short - Hou (2016)
technical win: So much for theory!
Oct-25-16 Alburt vs Fedorowicz, 1981
Bubo bubo: The white king is poorly defended: 43...Rxh2+ 44.Kxh2 Qf2+ 45.Kh1 (or 45.Kh3 Qxg3#) Qe1+ and mate after either 46.Kg2/h2 Qxg3+ 47.K~ Qg1# or 46.Nf1 Qxf1+ 47.Kh2 Qg2#
Oct-25-16 A Mein vs H Ho, 2008
Hodor: Hodor?
Oct-25-16 Averbakh vs Krogius, 1959
zydeco: With 69...Ra3 black can maintain the status quo, just shuffling his king between g7 and h7. As Averbakh nicely demonstrates, it's much easier for him to win the endgame with queens, rather than rooks.
Oct-25-16 T N Jensen vs Erlend Sateren, 2015
beenthere240: 10....f6 was a bit uninspired.
Oct-25-16 Polugaevsky vs Seirawan, 1985
Howard: Yes, Seirawan didn't get his pieces into play quickly enough.
Oct-25-16 Van Wely vs Delchev, 1988
Stonehenge: <won by Gelfand> Won by Dreev actually because he won their mutual game: Dreev vs Gelfand, 1988 .
Oct-25-16 Mamedyarov vs Gelfand, 2016
Ayaend: No way all sac for have the draw
Oct-25-16 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1962
Petrosianic: <Absentee>: <It wouldn't be surprising. It's a very un-petrosian like game.> It seems that way at first glance. 15. Bxf7+ would be very un-Petrosianlike if the move were speculative. If you look at it closely enough to see
Oct-25-16 Kholmov vs Taimanov, 1959
zydeco: Probably Taimanov should have traded queens when he had the chance on move 21 - black would be slightly better in the drawish endgame.
Oct-25-16 Krogius vs Kholmov, 1959
zydeco: +1 for the Central Defender. Krogius clearly overestimated his attack.
Oct-25-16 Polugaevsky vs Spassky, 1959
zydeco: <Nerwal> I think I would rather defend this endgame: 31...Qxf3 32.Nxf6 Qxf6 33.Qxf6 gxf6 and if 34.Rd7 Re7. I have doubled pawns and I'm passive, but at least material is equal. I'd prefer that to the line Spassky chose.
Oct-25-16 Kasimdzhanov vs Mamedyarov, 2016
Ayaend: It's a fast draw :-0
Oct-25-16 Spassky vs Portisch, 1977
Howard: By golly, you're right! I played this game over back in '87, but I didn't notice that fact.
Oct-25-16 Mamedyarov vs Ponomariov, 2016
Ayaend: 57.Kb6 won fast
Oct-25-16 Najdorf vs Nunn, 1983
cpalape: Un final de lujo.Dama ,torre y caballo contra dama,torre y caballo.linda victoria de Nunn.Bien.
Oct-25-16 Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1966)
Howard: True---maybe after being able to "rest" through the 1971 series of matches, he might have been recharged enough to make another go at it.
Oct-25-16 E Ubiennykh vs N Pogonina, 2016
Oct-25-16 Stein vs Portisch, 1962
andrea volponi: 11e5!
Oct-25-16 Shakhriyar Mamedyarov
MamedyarovFan: Hi <parisattack>: I saw your comment about Shak’s d6 in one of his games Mamedyarov vs Ponomariov, 2016 at the Amir Timur 680th Anniversary Rapid (2016) . Indeed he should have a patent on that move ;-) Interestingly in this ...
Oct-25-16 Browne vs Keres, 1975
DrGridlock: Some interesting variations "behind the scenes" in this game. In the position for black's move 16: Walter Shawn Browne - Paul Keres [DIAGRAM] Instead of 16 ... Kh7, Black has an opportunity to gain a significant advantage with a ...
Oct-25-16 Utut Adianto
talunanIM: ^^ehpeste^^ hoy bakla hinahanap ang mga gaya mong peste ni duterte pra palutangin kyo na mga tae mong kachupaan.
Oct-25-16 Henry Edward Bird
offramp: I found out a lot about him on the internet. I've been surfing Bird.
Oct-25-16 A Riazantsev vs D Kokarev, 2016
kwid: Oct-24-16 <An Englishman:> < Strange indeed to see a pawn sacrifice for a lead in development in an ending, but White somehow managed to transform that into an effective King side attack with minimal pieces> Yes; white's ...
Oct-25-16 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
DrGridlock: <It is true> that 23 b4 creates some "mobility" problems for black's b7 knight. There are a couple ways for black to attempt to solve these. <It is true> that 23 ... Qe7 is a bad solution to these problems, particularly ...
Oct-25-16 J Carr vs J Readey, 2001
kevin86: The CARR is parked!
Oct-25-16 C Bielicki vs Smyslov, 1964
Demna: What is so apparently wrong about 15: ...Nxb4?
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs K A Walbrodt, 1896
sneaky pete: After 13... Nd7 14.Bxb7 Rb8 15.Bxc6 Qh5 16.Qd5 .. [DIAGRAM] black must choose between 16... Qg4 17.h3 .. and 16... Rd8 17.Qe6# Black could have resigned after 13.Bc8 .. but he didn't. The actual game, also in this database, lasted 25 ...
Oct-25-16 Wesley So
dunkenchess: After boxing chess will be in thing of Manny. He will be inviting Wesley to visit RP.
Oct-25-16 Fedorowicz vs Alburt, 1988
Jonathan Sarfati: Two Benko specialists battle it out. Looks like Alburt miscalculated with 10... Nxe4 at that moment.
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs G Marco, 1898
Christoforus Polacco: Nice trap ! But anyway Marco was hard opponent.
Oct-25-16 T Luukkonen vs V Sarantos, 2015
rainingpieces: 35.Rg6 very nicely spotted
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs K A Walbrodt, 1896
Christoforus Polacco: 19.Nf4 to free 'd5' square for white Queen and blocks black Queen against check at 'e3'
Oct-25-16 Pillsbury vs Steinitz, 1894
Cucurbit: Euwe and Kramer's _The Middlegame Book 2, Dynamic and Subjective Features_, describes this game as "the punishment of a premature attack," but it's hard to see how white's attack is premature. At move 11, his pieces are developed to good
Oct-25-16 Prince Dadian vs S Kostrovitsky, 1896
WorstPlayerEver: Veni, vidi, abscedi.
Oct-25-16 R S Hoff
Tabanus: At is a bio of his father, Johan Haakon Hoff (1867-1929). He apparently participated in building the first skyscraper.
Oct-25-16 C Kottnauer vs Kotov, 1946
fiercebadger: Kottnauer was once my chess coach, he gave an evening class in Bell st London. I remember he was a little impatient with us patzers . at the end of the class he would play a simul and enjoy smashing us all up
Oct-25-16 Kavalek vs M Cuellar Gacharna, 1967
cpalape: Al final hay una red de mate.Dama.torre ,torre contra dama,torre y caballo.Bien por Cuéllar.
Oct-25-16 Mackenzie vs M Judd, 1881
offramp: Black left his rook en prise. [DIAGRAM] 13...g4! If White were to take it, now or in the future, then ...gxf3 followed by, in various orders, ...Qf8-h6, ...Nf6-g4, which would not be nice for White. Much later on Black had the chance ...
Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1892
Paarhufer: 14.. Kt-Q5 (Nd4) according to Steinitz in the NY Sun, 18 February 1892.
Oct-25-16 Mackenzie vs M Judd, 1881
offramp: Mackenzie saw a mirage. [DIAGRAM] 29. Rxc5 Rxc5 30. Bb4. I think he thought this won back the rook. [DIAGRAM] But the retreat 30...Nd7 keeps Black a piece ahead.
Oct-25-16 Edmund Beronio
epistle: Charles Krauthammer: <Well, then, this must be monomania of a certain sort. Chess is a particularly enclosed, self-referential activity. It’s not just that it lacks the fresh air of sport, but that it lacks connections to the real ...
Oct-25-16 Magnus Carlsen
moronovich: <The Boomerang> WITH tiebreaks included it is Carlsen 1.14 Karjakin 5.00 (Which is 4/1,the English/American way to express it)
Oct-25-16 O Girya vs E Ubiennykh, 2016
whiteshark: There are certain endgame similarities to A Bodnaruk vs D Charochkina, 2016 other wing, and ♗/♘ switch and no stalemate, though
Oct-25-16 Igor Ivanov vs Miles, 1982
whiteshark: "Miles couldn't handle c6ness"
Oct-25-16 C Van de Loo vs M Hesseling, 1983
whiteshark: "The white player surely exists, he was an old clubmate of mine. <The game however was invented by him.> He is/was probably one of the greatest connaisseurs of the Traxler-variation, certainly in The Netherlands. You won't find ...
Oct-25-16 A Bodnaruk vs A Kashlinskaya, 2016
An Englishman: Good Evening: The only draw of the round might have been the most interesting match of the day! Quite a struggle; at many points in the game it appeared as if both players were losing at the same time.
Oct-25-16 D Pustovoitova vs V Gunina, 2016
An Englishman: Good Evening: For one day, the spirit of Rudolf Spielmann walks the earth. Seriously, the Knight sacrifice with 14...Nf4 looks exactly like the type of "Preventive (or Anti-Castling) Sacrifice" of which he wrote so well in The Art ...
Oct-25-16 Arkadij Naiditsch
Mr. V: Naiditsch is one of the most dazzling recent players to never get close to competing for the WCC.
Oct-25-16 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
WorstPlayerEver: Fischer was a non conformist. I think that's the whole point; when he became the champ, he wanted to dictate the conditions of the WCC. And, in hindsight, he probably was right. Now we have a champ who is still acting like a ...
Oct-25-16 Amir Timur 680th Anniversary Rapid (2016)
Oct-25-16 Russian Superfinals (2016)
Imran Iskandar: <<et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?> john barleycorn: Let them challenge the girls to find out.> I imagine ...
Oct-24-16 Timur Gareev
Oct-24-16 Donald A Holmes
zanzibar: There can never be enough Lagavulin!
Oct-24-16 Yifan Hou vs Short, 2016
OhioChessFan: Oh dear, I just realized that is the Arkell-Khenkin Variation of the Caro-Kann you just mentioned, which quadruples down on the unknowns: 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 I'm not sure why that isn't just a plain old Caro-Kann.
Oct-24-16 Gelfand vs Kasimdzhanov, 2016
Domdaniel: <perf> Yes, that's a fine game. I'm interested because I can recall 2 or 3 games (over far too many years) where I won by playing dxc3, where bxc3 might have been expected. I have long suspected that a useful tip in such ...
Oct-24-16 Z Tekeyev vs V Fedoseev, 2016
poulh: Fedoseev played with confidence throughout. He knows the Tarrasch well.
Oct-24-16 D A Holmes vs Hebden, 1989
Pedro.Akcio: it took me a while to find the first move. It wasn't hard, only a little complicated for a monday puzzle.
Oct-24-16 Smitten vs Prince Dadian, 1880
Domdaniel: I'm Smitten! No, I'm Spartacus! No, honestly, I'm somebody else entirely ... but I'm still Smitten.
Oct-24-16 J A Porterfield Rynd vs W W Mackeson, 1885
Domdaniel: Rynd didn't have to do very much to win -- just capitalize on his opponent's errors.
Oct-24-16 Prince Dadian vs M Bitcham, 1892
Bubo bubo: <morphy234: That's the strangest-looking mate I've ever seen.> Yes, nice fabrication - I doubt that there is a single genuine win of Andrey D.!
Oct-24-16 Prince Dadian vs Boulitchoff, 1882
Bubo bubo: Is there a single genuine win of Andrey Dadian?
Oct-24-16 James Alexander Porterfield Rynd
Domdaniel: Mason-Rynd match:
Oct-24-16 Mel O'Cinneide
Annie K.: From Domdaniel chessforum (kibitz #24030) : From the IRLchess website, a post by Mel O Cinneide (aka Mel Kennedy): <Not that it matters much, but this is a site about Irish chess history and my name change will confuse anyone looking ...
Oct-24-16 Alapin vs Chigorin, 1906
Christoforus Polacco: Probably Alapin should play ''chicken'' move 12.Be2 to protect long castling or 14.h3
Oct-24-16 Gelfand vs Mamedyarov, 2016
Ayaend: Nice game! White seems to have better attack but black sacrifice some good pawns to manoeuvre before the white pawns ! Beautiful played.
Oct-24-16 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999
Petrosianic: The real bummer is when that loss defines you. Just off the top of my head, both Kieseritzky and Napier are best known for games they lost.
Oct-24-16 Prince Andrey Dadian of Mingrelia
Bubo bubo: Oh no - the Prince of Fake is <POTD> again! Is there really no worthy player born on October 24?
Oct-24-16 Karpov vs Topalov, 1994
Petrosianic: Hasty Generalization Fallacy
Oct-24-16 Spassky vs Portisch, 1982
antonioaguilar: Dont push g4 when Black can answer with f5! Portisch perfectly shows why. It is interesting to see how Black can refute <14.g5> with many moves. The line I like the most is <14.g5 e5 15.Bg2 d5!>
Oct-24-16 Alapin vs B Maliutin, 1905
Christoforus Polacco: Alapin had a lot of different ways to win. For example : 29.Q:d4 or 30.Q:a5
Oct-24-16 Sidney Miller Ballou
saffuna: Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou-ou-ou She's mean and evil through and through
Oct-24-16 Acs vs S Williams, 1994
ChesterKing46: How do I flip the board.
Oct-24-16 Alapin vs J N Berger, 1887
Christoforus Polacco: Why 10.N:d7 ? Probably better is 10.Kh1
Oct-24-16 Kasparov vs Radjabov, 2003
ewan14: Fischer did not enjoy the waters being muddied either , before 1971
Oct-24-16 Georg Salwe
TheFocus: Happy birthday, Georg Salwe. I hate seeing George spelled without the final "e."
Oct-24-16 Horace Curzon Plunkett
TheFocus: You didn't just beat Steinitz twice unless you were good.
Oct-24-16 A Carstanjen
TheFocus: Why is this guy listed as <A. Carstanjen> and his bio says <Wilhelm Adolf (von) Carstanjen>? Seriously?
Oct-24-16 Prince Dadian vs M Sicard, 1901
fm avari viraf: <Jazzer32>After all he was a Prince so nobody can question him otherwise his head would be chopped off.
Oct-24-16 N Baktach vs Marjorie Herrera, 2016
RookFile: 45....g5 is also good but it lets white get a few worthless checks in with Qe4+ first. 45....Ne2+ is more forcing.
Oct-24-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2008
Grbasowski: Why not 22. Bxc8???
Oct-24-16 Moscow (1967)
RookFile: Fischer at this tournament would have thought that Stein's 6 wins were cute. I see Fischer putting up something like 10 wins and 2 losses with his style of play.
Oct-24-16 A Muzychuk vs L Javakhishvili, 2016
Domdaniel: <kingfu> -- < Hey Dom! What do you play against the Poison Pawn? Does 7...Kf8 work?> Yeah, maybe, though in general I don't much like lines with ...Kf8. I've been avoiding the whole Poison Pawn variation recently, either ...
Oct-24-16 Kosteniuk vs A Goryachkina, 2016
Cstep: Great win! Black pushed hard and fell.
Oct-24-16 Blackburne vs J Schwarz, 1881
sfm: <morfishine: Another nonsensical play-on-word perverting a player's name...> "Blackburne Singing due to dead of Knight" would have been preferable. But still - OK!
Oct-24-16 Alexander Kevitz
TheFocus: Rest in peace, Alexander Kevitz.
Oct-24-16 Ding Liren
TheFocus: Happy birthday, Ding Liren!
Oct-24-16 Walter R Lovegrove
TheFocus: Happy birthday, Walter Lovegrove!!!
Oct-24-16 Russian Superfinals (Women) (2016)
et1: Any explanation to the fact that in this tournament in 8 rounds we have 33 decisive games and 15 draws whereas in the men's tournament we have 13 decisive games and 35 draws ? Super GMs know how to draw more and are harder to beat ?
Oct-24-16 T De Vos vs D Peter, 1988
An Englishman: Good Morning: "Swashbreaking." Very nice!
Oct-24-16 Spassky vs Pachman, 1967
andrea volponi: 21...f5=
Oct-24-16 Khalifman vs Timman, 2000
plang: Khalifman had an absolutely dominating performance in this four player double round robin scoring 5.5-0.5 finishing 2 and a half points ahead of Timman( Galkin and Polgar were the other players). 13..c6?! was a new move that has not been ...
Oct-24-16 Tal vs Larsen, 1965
nezhmet: Looking at it in 2016 with Stockfish I think black is just totally busted in the main sac line with ...Ne5 Bf4 c5 Nc3 a6 b4 b6.
Oct-24-16 Chess Olympiad (2016)
WannaBe: Chess players had to be drug tested.
Oct-24-16 S Blaas vs P Pancras, 1996
kevin86: Oops, black groke a blass!
Oct-24-16 Paulo Bersamina
pinoymaster77: Good projections for the 11 yr old Indian boy wonder Praggy. Devt of our own bbking got stunted, has not shown dominance even at ASEAN level
Oct-24-16 Judit Polgar vs J Costa, 1987
GrandMaesterPycelle: according to Polgar, 28...a6 is already almost losing. 29...a5 is the only defense, but 30.Rb5+ Ka7 and now 31.Bxa5 retains an advantage.
Oct-24-16 Mamedyarov vs Ponomariov, 2016
maxi: I see. Thanks.
Oct-24-16 Ivanchuk vs Karpov, 1994
saffuna: <And the rest are regular contributors on Kenneth Rogoff> "They're coming to take me away, hey hey...."
Oct-24-16 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981
thegoodanarchist: <Spitecheck: ... More than once in this 1981 match Karpov was able to bust Korchnoi's white side with a d4 break in the middle.> And Korchnoi returned the "favor" here: Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1981
Oct-24-16 Alexander Riazantsev
iking: round 8 leader .. keep on Alex.
Oct-24-16 Anderssen vs M Lange, 1852
Paarhufer: The game-score is incomplete. White won after a few more moves ( Schachzeitung 1852, p 308).
Oct-24-16 Spielmann vs Saemisch, 1925
saturn2: Boleslavsky quotes this game in the book on the Sicilian as an example that white gets a pawn less for no compensation in the wing gambit. <Ludwidge> The last move of black was a terrible mistake and by no means forced.
Oct-24-16 Artur Kogan
OhioChessFan: He appears to prefer the spelling of his first name as "Arthur", and is listed that way on his FIDE card.
Oct-24-16 Yifan Hou vs Short, 2008
Dirkster: I just got the pun in the title - brilliant!!!
Oct-24-16 Flohr vs S Landau, 1939
JimNorCal: Quite a startling finish!
Oct-24-16 Ding Liren vs Svidler, 2016
sakredkow: Boy that looked like a lot of work.
Oct-24-16 Yifan Hou
Pantagruel: Wow! Yifan's photo has finally been updated! Now we have a much more recent one, from 2008 at the World Junior Championship, where she's wearing a goofy T-shirt. That's quite fitting for the womens world champion. Thanks, CG!
Oct-24-16 Prince Dadian vs Kolisch, 1867
scutigera: As an aside, Kolisch’s Wikipedia biography states that, while he became extremely wealthy later, he was “the private secretary to Prince [Sergei Nikolaevich] Urusov” at or before the time this game was played, while the year after, ...
Oct-24-16 G Papp vs M Womacka, 2006
fredthebear: Is 23.Nxb5+ better?
Oct-24-16 Kasparov vs Z Sturua, 1976
beatgiant: <poulh> 38...Ke7 39. Qh7 and it looks to me like Black has to allow a repetition if he wants to keep the g-pawn. Other 38th moves by Black allow an immediate perpetual check. So I don't see how Black would play for a win here.
Oct-24-16 H Rittner vs V Kornfilt, 1965
Ibisha Biscotto: wow, look at those pawns ~ (°◡°♡)
Oct-24-16 Kasparov vs I Morovic, 1977
RookFile: Yes.... with that Bxb3 black didn't allow Na5.
Oct-24-16 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981
RookFile: Normally in the queen's gambit accepted, when black plays cxd4 white plays exd4, cheerfully accepting the isolated d pawn but using it as a battering ram with d5. But here, in this deferred version of the queen's gambit accepted, 10. ...
Oct-24-16 V Gunina vs A Bodnaruk, 2016
Bruce Graham: Agreed <siggemannen> the Gun seems to lack bullets.
Oct-24-16 G MacDonnell vs J Wisker, 1874
RookFile: Oh, if black had just played 33...Qxf2. I'm not sure if his play was sound, but it was daring, and with two pawns up, he has every reason to trade queens.
