    apologies to Caro Kann but in a recent game I spotted between Caro and Cabbages the side with NO Queens defeated a side with 3 Queens. A most unusual outcome you would think. What would be the record number of queens a player has had and still lost?

    I remember reading that in some game between Ben Dover and Tanya Hyde many queens were involved.
    But this record was later broken in a game between Neal Down and Seymour Butts.

    This game was posted in the LFC Supporters private forum clan.

    Apparently Cabbages was a very poor sport for not resigning half way through the game.

    It did make me laugh.................
    Nice finish cabbages

    I agree it was a funny game.

    But the thing about being a bad sport for not resigning half way thru? Where you get that from.

    And I couldnt do anything the mate was forced

    i dont understand this comment - he won didnt he?

    he did the right thing in playing on even if he was "behind" as there was still a decent chance of winning (proven by the fact that he did win by mate and not on time alone).

    Forced mate??Maybe right before the last move or last two moves but surely before that you could've queened one pawn less and ensured your king safety instead!

    No!

    You can be down and overwhelming amount of material and still mate....



    Black to move.

    ***I'm sure its even possible to create a position where white has even less material and still mates.

    In practical play however, most people would get a single Queen then defend/attack, not march another 3 pawns down the board while white/black carries out his own plans

    or, they can get bunch of horsies and trample the king, like nakamura did.

    When should you resign ?

    Maybe if your opponent says "mate in 17 moves "?

    I say, fight to the very end !
