  fredthebear: 28...Qf5+ is an interesting move from the stand point that Black declines to capture the c6-pawn, allowing a pawn jam near the Black castled king, but his majesty is never threatened. (Both sides have castled long.) White then gladly gives up her light-squared bishop two moves later -- an innocent but fateful endeavor. Then the White queen occupies the long diagonal but is a non-factor as she is blocked by her own advanced pawn, still untaken on c6.

Black loads up against the backward b2-pawn. This game concludes with an immaculate, immune obstruction check by the Black knight 47...Nc1+ which allows RxBe1 which allows Bxc3. A windmill check awaits when the Black knight is ready to get off the back rank. But none of that will be necessary after the devastating follow-up 48...Qb3 and mate is unstoppable. The overworked White Rb1 cannot capture the thorny Nc1 beside him and protect b2 at the same time.

Sep-12-20  SvetlanaBabe: This game is both a celebration and condemnation of feminism on so many levels! Women using their Queens to attack and protect the weak man, nominally called a King. The patriarchy uses women to fight among themselves to protect the weakling male. Horrific.

  perfidious: The flight of fancy posted above should have been saved for the Rogovian miasma--it is simply a game of chess, not an exercise in feminist dogma.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <SvetlanaBabe>--The object of the game is regicide. Maybe you would find it more congenial to think of chess in Freudian terms, as a symbolic form of father-murder.

Sep-14-20  Viking707: Nona doesn't get the recognition she deserves. The first woman IG, the women's world champion for 16 years, and a list of victories over noted male IGs and numerous brilliancies, like this one, all suggest she should be in the pantheon of chess champions.
