Double Queen sacrifice !

A Queen sac is always lovely... But what about a double queen sac ?

Here is the game played yesterday (!) on OTB tournament between me (2000) and Kevin alliot (1797) from France.

    Congratulations! I think that a double queen sac is one of the rarest of all events on the chessboard. I gave a lecture about them at where I called it the "Henry VIII motif" (because he sacrificed a few queens). I gave three examples: Charousek-Wollner 1893, a very famous one; Monokroussos-Barcarola 1999 (which sets a record of 48 moves between queen sacrifices, but the second one merely forces a stalemate); and Kramnik-Leko 2007, which I think is the prettiest one because it came in an endgame that would otherwise have been a draw. Your game most closely resembles Charousek-Wollner.
