Mar-06-09  Samagonka: 2 queens against one, now that's not fair! :0(
Mar-25-09  WhiteRook48: how does 4. Qh5+ win after 4...g6?
May-24-09  WhiteRook48: seven queens against zero, now that's not fair!
Jan-13-11  Salaskan: After move 7 the only thing white has accomplished with his 'gambit' is relinquishing the bishop pair...
Dec-07-18  radioarno: Black has a couple of bad blunders in here.
