Nov-30-05  makaveli52: got some crazy queen games this week...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Yikes. I wonder if the players also had trouble trying to figure out who was attacking whom.

Meanwhile, to get a little too technical, the opening transposes into a Schmid Benoni (1.d4,c5; 2.d5,d6). Also, since neither player is a lady, I don't understand the title.

Nov-30-05  ProperRaveUp: It might be because of the odd occurence of having three Queens on a board.

  TheAlchemist: <Bobak Zahmat: Amazing. <> What is the rating of Zlatko Jeraj?>

His current Elo is 2104.

Nov-30-05  CeeFoR: OMG! !!!!
Nov-30-05  chessic eric: can someone explain 47...,Ng4
Nov-30-05  alicefujimori: <chessic eric> White is threatening 48.g3+ when 48..Kxh3 49.Ng5 Nxg5 50.Rh4 mate. So black blocks the rook with a sac.
Nov-30-05  Koster: Hard to believe this was a real game, instead of something someone composed.
Nov-30-05  lopium: I'm dreaming about composed nice games!!! Can you imagine the work it can be if you want such a game?? Ahahahzz!!
Nov-30-05  chessic eric: thanks <alicefujimori>, saw 48.g3+ and 49.Ng5 but somehow i missed that Rh4 was mate.
Nov-30-05  weisyschwarz: Sorry, <chessic eric>, I cannot. <ProperRaveUp>, then why not call it "Queen Concert"? Very good game though. Entertaining, indeed, <RuyLopez900>.
Nov-30-05  Halldor: <An Englishman ...I don't understand the title.> Maybe because the knight jumps are a constant headache to the queens. There are many queens in this game, but the knight is the star!

  kevin86: Funny,the game ends with white at a material advantage WITHOUT a queen! I think an odd problem having multiple queens is that only one can be moved at a time?! This week seems to show that having extra queens does not mean a win.

  Sneaky: Boy, the games this week so far have been a number of undiscovered gems.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: If 44...Nd6, then 45.Nf7+!
Jan-12-06  prinsallan: 54 white to play could be a nice puzzle.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sfm: Terrific!
Sep-16-08  Xeroxx: Splendid!
Jan-02-09  WhiteRook48: the extra queen doesn't help here. She's outnumbered by rook, bishop, and knight who are more powerful than that fashion lady. ;-)
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: who needs a queen anyway?
Jun-28-12  vinidivici: what if 47...a1=Q ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: <vinidivici: what if 47...a1=Q ?>

47...a1=Q 48.g3+ Kxh3 49.Ng5+ Nxg5 50.Rh4#.

Jun-30-12  Xeroxx: wild.
Mar-20-14  Ed Frank: This is unreal.
Mar-21-14  barryh1976: I bet their heads hurt after this one!
