  Honza Cervenka: <An early Pirc> I don't think so. The year is definitely messed. According to's database the game was played in the first round of Berliner Sommer 1993.

Jul-05-05  ksadler: <By the way, the game is cool!> Wow, you are right! 2 queens for White against none for Black and a win for Black!
Jul-05-05  msharkey: - - it seems unlikely that this game was played in 1866 (as attributed) - given that Marcus Thinius has his next game in the database in 1992. Perhaps he has discovered the fountain of youth?

  Honza Cervenka: 26.Qxd1 was necessary. After 26.Qxd1 Rxd1 27.Qxb7 Bc4 28.Qxc6 Bxf1 29.Kh2 Nxg2 30.Bc5 white should not lose the game.
Jul-05-05  Milo: Eh? Why not 27.Bc5 in your line, Honza?
Jul-05-05  Milo: Ah, nevermind, I had the wrong position

  Honza Cervenka: <Eh? Why not 27.Bc5 in your line, Honza?> The Queen is attacked.:-)

Aug-13-10  b3wins: Hey, <Catfriend>, you should add this to your Multi-queens game collection. I think a sub-collection is possible, where the two queens lose. A beautiful combination by Beim.
