    Anticipated SG. Game 4980804 😉

    Rique - vgunzler RHP 2008

    Black User 414569 who has BTW an amusing profile.
    Could have done it on move 4 but wanted to give her Queen
    a wee trip to f2 and d4 first.



    The shortest Qxe4 mate with White I could find was 17 moves.

    kuntakente - 1kingshorty RHP 2001



    Special mention must be made to...

    nolaviking - Mahoutsoukai RHP 2009
    For showing you one method of digging out a castled King
    culminating in a mate with Qxe4.
