    May we have the pleasure of seeing you win both the last rounds Ms Chess Queen

  8. mesut says:

    I think she made you win easily by making several mistakes the game is easy for you to win. i wonder what would happen if Elina Danielian had played 24…NF6 instead of Rg6.

  9. chessqueen says:

    After 24.e6! it’s an easy win for white. If 24…Nf6 25. Qxf7+ wins immediately.
