  fredthebear: Definitely not your standard fare! White sacs both knights on the 14th and 15th moves and then nabs the Black queen as she's required to give herself up to prevent mate. Black makes a nice recovery and defends well. The game then struggles on in a battle of White's queen against Black's rook, bishop and knight. White is trying to promote a pawn when Her Majesty is able to produce a winning check and fork as the Black king has nowhere to hide.

  Benzol: I bet both players enjoyed playing this game, even the loser.
Aug-19-17  ughaibu: Benzol: isn't that rather natural? After all, we pay good money to lose games in simuls.

About the game, wouldn't it have been better to bring the rook in via h4? For example, at move 25...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Interesting little brawl. Looked as if White might have proven amenable to a perpetual (e.g., 59.Kc5) in a few places. With Q & 2P v. 3 minors, White had a significant material edge after 18 moves; he might have made the game a little more difficult than necessary.
