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.
