Chess game of quick Queens!

Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess News & Trivia (c) 2010

Hello Everyone,

How many moves into a game do you think you can manage to promote a pawn to a Queen? We mean in a regular game with regular moves and no trick moves? Pretty long... right? Sometimes, you may even have to wait till the endgame to actually promote a pawn. Well! Here is an interesting game and it seems both players were in a real hurry to promote their pawns to Queens.

The result: Four Queens on the board by Move 7. Enjoy the game.

You can run the moves in our pgnplayer or watch in flash below.

PGN: 1. e4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. e5 d4 4. exf6 dxc3 5. d4 cxb2 6. fxg7 bxa1=Q 7. gxh8=Q Qxa2 8. Nf3 Bf5 9. Ne5 Qa5+ 10. Bd2 Qad5 11. Bc4 Qe4+ 12. Be3 e6 13. O-O Qdh4 14. Bd3 Qd5 15. Bxf5 exf5 16. Re1 Nd7 17. Nf3 Qh5 18. Bg5+ Qe4 19. Qd2 f6 20. Bxf6 Qxe1+ 21. Qxe1+ Kf7 22. Ng5+ Kg6 23. Qg8+

    Not Meaning to be rude, Do you think its a real game?
    Or something the contestants scripted in advance?
    I know this has happened in the states in some lesser events
    but .. a national championship? I wonder ... or perhaps it
    was a subtle form of protest? All speculation, but it seems to odd to me.

    Blessings, BB.
