  Phony Benoni: Normally, having four queens on the board is like combining matter and anti-matter: something gets blown up very quickly. The nine move sequence in this game is quite unusual, especially in such a simplified position.

It's nowhere near a record, though: Tim Krabbé quotes a 2004 game between Milov and Timofeev (not in our database) with a twenty-move sequence. But that started early in the game with a lot of other pieces in the way of the queens getting at each other.
