May-29-10  capanegra: I'm surprised no one has commented yet this thrilling miniature with four Queens on board created by old man Tartakower. Suddenly, after the tremendous 17♕5a4!! it is all over for White.

This game was played on September 23 of 1954 and White was Serge Rosenberg, presumably the same S Rosenberg which figures in the database.

In his notes, Tartakower comments that curiously two days after this game, the game I Johannsson vs Z Nilsson, 1954 was played in the team world championship in Amsterdam. The moves were identical up to move 13, "but the result was no less tragic for White".

May-29-10  ounos: 14. Ke2 is just asking for trouble, why not 14. Bd2?
May-29-10  capanegra: <ounos> Indeed, Tartakower noted that 14.Bd2 was better, though after 14...Qxd1+ 15.Kxd1 Qxa2 Black keeps a clear advantage.
May-17-11  Salaskan: The four queens variation only works for white if he has played 8.Be2 instead of Bd3 since he can then play 14.Nd2 without losing the d4 pawn.
