Or after that simply take his knight instead when checkmate was at hand?
What rating is Ajax?
It's not too uncommon to see a Queen left hanging and missed.
It's is so rarely done that some players have never seen one.
Nobody has simply left a Queen v me OTB.
I doubt if I'll ever find the position again but last year I did see a
White Queen left en prise. Black played something else.
He sacced a Rook to pull off a Knight fork that...won the White Queen.
Don't blame the 1200 player, laugh at the game.
I've said this before, this game is so brilliant that a handful of moves played
by an amatuer can bring just as much amusement as a 40 move masterpiece
by a Capablanca. At least I can understand the amatuer game.
