  chessmoron: What! No one has kibitz here. Interesting. This is a beautiful queen sacrifice.
Dec-04-06  lucifershammer: I agree -- it was ingenious.
Apr-16-07  sandmanbrig: Truly brilliant indeed.
Apr-02-08  SuperPatzer77: Black has powerful tactics with rook, bishop and knight against White with Queen and knight. White tries 30. Qa4 Rc1+, 31. Kb2 Rc2+!, 32. Ka1* (32. Ka3 Rxa2#) Rxd2, 33. Qxa5 Rd1+!, 34. Kb2 Rb1+, 35. Ka3 Nc2+!, 36. Ka4 b5+! - forcing White to lose the White Queen.

*Note: Instead of 32. Ka1, 32. Kb1 Rxd2+, 33. Kc1 Rxa2! - getting the White Queen trapped.

Apr-10-08  Buddy Revell: Interesting to notice that after 17.♕a3, the White Queen fell asleep and only moved again when the pieces were set up for a new game. =P
