Feb-17-05  MidnightDuffer: I don't mean to draw a blank, but I haven't seen many games here where the Queen gets trapped in such a succinct manor, well done, Black had to see this ahead of time!
Dec-11-07  patzerboy: Meanwhile, Blank had lifted too many steins to his lips before the game.
Sep-01-08  Ulhumbrus: A useful thing to know. The Queen does not pin the a6 pawn from a4, if ahe gets trapped after taking the Rook on a8.
