It's rare to see four queens on the board at once and remain on the board until the game is over.  But that's what happened in this French Defense game where International Master Bernard Zuckerman lost to National Master Louis Levy in the 1974 Marshall Chess Club Championship.  Both players promoted a passed pawn to become a Queen while they still had thier original Queens.  But the player that promoted first checkmated the other player.
