  Honza Cervenka: An interesting game with 4 Queens on the board.

  Sneaky: Somebody should make a "four queens" collection. There is also the famous Fischer vs Petrosian, 1959
Oct-25-03  mymt: why not 33....Qxg4?
Oct-25-03  drukenknight: you know the one conclusion I came to when I looked at that Fischer 4 queens game is that the more Qs on the board, the game becomes LESS complicated, sort of odd I know.

I think at the end Gary has to keep checking what if 69...Qg2+?

Oct-26-03  skakmiv: 69..Qg2+ 70.Qxg2+ hxg2 71.Bd4
Dec-07-04  allanon880: Great 4 queen game! Very well played!
Feb-20-05  Boomie: Well played unless you ignore the blunder on move 33 by black as pointed out by mymt. I see no obvious reason not to take the bishop giving black plenty of material to win. It's so hard to imagine anyone missing this move that I suspect the position is wrong.
Mar-11-05  jahhaj: <Boomie> I suspect White's 33rd and 34th moves have been transposed.
Dec-14-05  Chester373: i don't understand 28 for black or 29 for white...why didn't black take the pawn with his rook...and why did white move his rook at all?
Dec-14-05  alicefujimori: <Chester373> 28...Rxc2?? 29.hxg6 hxg6 30.Ne3! winninga piece.

29.Rd1 was to protect the bishop and ready to play hxg6 next move.

Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: and the bishop overpowers the 2 black queens
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: I wonder why Kasparov lost...
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: why didn't white play 76 Qxf6+?
May-02-09  WhiteRook48: oh 76 Qc5+ leads to 77 Qe3#
Aug-31-16  MrJafari: Why White didn't play 29.hxg6?
Aug-31-16  Shams: <MrJafari> Can't say for sure but it doesn't win a piece; after 29.hxg6 hxg6 white must part with a minor piece of his own.
Nov-12-17  LA MAN: After k-e2 at end then q-g4 and blacks queen moves between white mates with his other queen on the diagonal.
