    related, if inversely, to the prior thread re: abject defeats ;

    i find at -4 pts ... i rarely if ever, prevail .. heck l8tely prevailing period is becoming the challenge! Anyone have a game where they won when down a queen ?

    Best comeback - As they sat down to start game 3 in the recently finished World Championship, Magnus Carlsen was caught on camera saying to Anand: "Nice wig Vishy, what's it made of?". Quick as a flash Anand quipped: "Your mum's chest hair!".

    Not my game, but an inspirational example, nonetheless. Interestingly, after winning the queen (for a piece and a pawn, but not much else) in move 11, the White player did nothing else but defended for the remainder of the game.

    The only game I won with no queen vs queen I think. Black presses all the way, then gets himself into trouble, blundering (or saccing?) his queen and only then manages to hunt the white king down.

    I looked over a few of my comeback wins. To be frank, it's just a matter of me blundering first. Then them returning the favor.

    He wasn't really down a queen, but a queen and two pawns for a rook and a knight.

    I was at a bikini bar once and the only dancer that day was outside taking a cigarette break. A guy walked in, saw all the guys and said, "It looks like a gay bar in here!"

    One of the patrons came back with "Is that why you came?"

    Not down a queen, but my favorite;
