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.

  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.

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.
