Here is a very unique game. The final position features five queens on the board, which is most likely a record. The opening features Mackic attacking his opponent, Maksimenko's kingside relentlessly, but to no avail. Maksimenko fights off the attack and obtains a pawn mass in the center. He then forces it through to promotion. Mackic fights on a while after promotions of his own, but is eventually forced to bow to the inevitable.
i got 7 queens in a game on chess.com, ill try to send the link. i took a screenshot on my cell phone.
if the white queen takes the rook the black queen takes the white queen
why do you guys choose the ugliest chess board colors? looking at it makes me want to read a different article
@ Archaic71 I think Nakamura beat Crafty with six knights in 160 or so moves. He also beat Rybka with five bishops in almost 280 moves.
Neat game. Reminds me of Nakamura's multiple knight game against the computer a few years ago.
dokter_nee: If 24. Rf1?? then black simply wins a queen by Qxf4.
I cannot believe that Ruecker-Schumacher was a serious game. It must've been a pre-arranged draw where they had decided in advance to do that, surely.
By they way, I was totally wrong, whites queen is hanging is there.
5 Queens on the board is for sure not a record. Remember one of those games where one does not want to give up and the other one is not in a hurry of checkmating and queens all his pawns, at the risk of stalemating his opponent?
Even if we want to redefine the record, after a quick search, I found some games with a total of 6 Queens on the board, 3 vs. 3.
First of all, a very funny game:
And a game played last year:
Awesome! Esspecially the last one.Beginning of the 32. move born of the second queen.Never saw that :)
In the game, I don't get the move 24 Qd6? Why not Rf1 winning a piece, or am i missing something.. It seems so obvious, there must be something wrong with it, but I can't figure it out.
Surprisingly this is the second game I have seen which has had 5 queens on the board at once. In this game, which I found a couple weeks ago on chessgame when I was looking for a pro level game with 3 queens at once, white promotes in the mid-game and maintains a two queen lead for a long time. When the 3rd queen does arrive, it doesn't last long. Makes you wonder about how the board was set up, and how they must have had to stop the clock to fetch the 3rd queen piece. Interestingly, the 3 queen advantage doesn't prove to useful in this game.
