Jul-22-05  Orbitkind: Wow, a queen trap.
Apr-23-06  DrJekyll: Susan displays some great chessic panache in a World Championship match with a Q trap LOL very much the way Morphy beat me years ago hahahahaha!!!!!! when I was pizzed in the tavern indeed! Mr. Hyde
Aug-30-08  Whitehat1963: A good Monday/Tuesday puzzle: black to move after 33. Kb1.
May-03-18  Patzer Natmas: I saw the Queen trap, but what makes the game exquisite is Susan must have saw it too and waited for the right time to play Ra4. The move 31...Qxe5 forces a bishop move. Once the bishop is on e6, now the white queen can be attacked since the threat of Qe6 (exchanging queens) is gone.

  morfishine: <32.Be6+> is an error

Correct is <32.Qa7> targeting <h7> as well as both Black rooks (overloading the Black Queen)

Black will have to undertake some extra special squirming to organize an effective defense

32.Qa7 will be met with -Qe3+,followed by Rb4+ and 0-1.(underloading the White Queen) ;)
