The greedy queen

Gigi, a friend and student from Italy sent this game with the message: 
"Ciao Attila,this morning I played a funny match with Kingloth; he was so busy takink my pieces with his queen:  he took a bishop and both  rocks: I decided not to disturb his job and went up with my night and queen, giving checkmate." If the queen would stop her captures when she won the bishop, then black would have a winning position. This games shows how important to look for the opponent's counterplay.

When you replay the game, please look the annotations under the board and look also the variations and side lines!

    I have to agree with the first two comments.  Very bad game by both sides.

    What elo123 says is true..  And the game itself is so bad played by both players, it doesn't have any learning

    How often will you repost this game Attila? This is the third time I've seen it in the last couple months!
