Queenside Attacks, Mates & Resignations A, D, E
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This is a collection split. Most of the king pawn games are removed.

FTB has a liberal interpretation of "queenside." The game does not have to start or finish there (but does so in most cases), as long as some sort of interesting action occurs from a-d that shapes the outcome.
