I'm surprised nobody has commented on this game so far.

Feb-15-14  Francio: Six Queens! Is that a record? Thanks Phony Benoni for compiling all those multiple queen endings.

  kevin86: Six queens and the game will be decided by a seventh!


Mar-21-14  Whitehat1963: Wow! Incredible game at master level. Six queens! Crazy!

  OhioChessFan: 76...Kc1 would have been better.

Black's last move was a blunder, understandable after 81 moves, although I assume a time control had just been reached. 81..Kb2 and White has a lot of work to do.

  GrahamClayton: Not a question about this game, but about multi-queen games that are played at weekender tournaments. Does each set used for such a tournament have a spare set of queens? If not, is there a central pool of queens for promotions, or do the players borrow queens from the boards where games have already finished?
Dec-31-16  Helios727: They can borrow Queens from other boards or use upside down rooks. I once had to use an upside down rook.
Jan-29-17  ColeTrane: There was a great game in the database like this called The Harem....great pun.

  FSR: See also E Rosen vs Sonja Lang, 2019.
Jan-04-21  kereru: upside down rooks are not acceptable according to FIDE rules. If you don't have at least 2 spare sets on hand though you're not running your tournament very well.
Dec-19-21  Brenin: 81 ... Kb2 seems to hold the draw. The Black K must avoid squares such as a2, b3, d1 and d2 which allow Qd5+.

  ajk68: 81...d2?? is an obvious blunder.
Premium Chessgames Member
  ajk68: 81...Kb2 is still losing.

According to the tablebase...

81... Kb2 82. Ke2 Qf6 83. Qd3 (best line for both players)

Black then has a choice.

83... Qg7 84. Qe3 Qg2 85. Qb6+ Ka1 86. Qa5+ Kb1 87. Qxe5 Kc1 88. Qc3+ Kb1 89. e5 Qe4+ 90. Qe3 Qc2+ 91. Ke1 Qc1+ 92. Qxc1+ Kxc1

and the pawn queens
