Mar-10-04  ughaibu: This is this game J Krejcik vs Takacs, 1920 with reversed colours, my wild guess would be that this is the correct version.

  kevin86: Black turns an attack on the queen into a win as the lady is trapped!
Oct-22-04  uzeromay: Trapped queen positions remind me of zugzwangs because they call for the cooperation of so many pieces.
Oct-22-04  uzeromay: I think you meant to say, "...attack 'by' the queen..."
Oct-22-04  uzeromay: "White's Queen is in zugzwang. Anywhere she moves, she will get taken."

  tpstar: Yet similar to the other game, White's Queen technically has an escape square = 7. Qg5 Qxg5 8. Bxg5 although this loses a Rook to 8 ... Bxb2.
Nov-20-04  aw1988: Lol, this is what you can expect in blitz conditions.
Aug-12-05  elh: You can hardly call it zugzwang -- this refers to a situation where the player would prefer NOT to move. Zugzwang applies to the player, not any one piece, and it requires that the compulsion to move (that's what zugzwang means, "compulsion to move") is what ruins the guy's game -- think of a king and pawn ending where the other guy has the opposition. The word you want is domination -- White's queen is dominated.
Dec-17-05  reendo21: I think zugswang works here.....any move is bad....!!
Jan-10-07  olav dalkeith: The term Zugzwang does not apply here at all. As aw1988 notes, Zugzwang means "compulsion to move", meaning that the player would be better off if he would not have to move at all. Any move will worsen his situation. If you don't believe this then please check a dictionary.
Feb-04-08  just a kid: Brilliant game by Black!I'm putting this in my new collection(Budapest Gambit).
Dec-13-10  Old King Cole: A brilliant queen trap on move 6 with the lesson, do not take a knight pawn with your Queen.
Jun-01-11  waustad: A similar theme to the GOTD.J Krejcik vs Munz, 1911

  OBIT: White's queen isn't quite trapped, since he can play 7. Qg5. However, then 7...Qxg5 8. Bxg5 Bxb2 wins a rook as in M Foudzi-Ahmad vs C Rogers, 2001.

  Check It Out: The Budapest has a lot of traps.
Jul-06-13  Abdel Irada: <uzeromay: "White's Queen is in zugzwang. Anywhere she moves, she will get taken.">

I think this represents a misunderstanding of zugzwang. The latter denotes a condition in which no piece is in danger where it stands, but nothing can move except into harm's way.

Etymology helps: German [zug] = move + [zwang] = bound. In other words, one is bound by the requirement to make a move; if one could "pass," one could avoid losing, but since one can't, one must suffer.
