Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-07-05  galoa: What an amazing game! Jianchao gave up a queen for a knight *twice* in one game. Anyone seen that before?
Nov-07-05  JoeyCJK: Yes, on first look, a very crazy game! Queen sacrifices and an underpromotion to a knight! But I am not at all sure everything is sound. This game is just like what Fischer said some time back :" World Wrestling Entertainment(WWE) Chess!"
Nov-10-05  Bobak Zahmat: THIS is a real crazy game!!! What tha hell is going on? Is this guy, Zhou Jianchao, really so powerfull? Or was did just a child's play for him?

  kevin86: A crazy one!!! Black loses his queen very early-but gains a large material advantage. Then he underpromotes to a knight. Finally he corrals a stampeding pawn at the seventh-just before a draw is forced.
Oct-20-06  lordazol4: 109...-ne3 black wins queen
Oct-20-06  aw1988: That is true. Both work though, I think...

It's hard to play chess after 100 moves - you miss things.

  tpstar: <this is a must see game for everyone!> Agree. The coordination of the Black forces against the White Queen is quite impressive.

Cute finish.
