Queen-Rook checkmate


Midday yesterday I won this Correspondence Chess Club Tournament game with my Black Queen, defended and assisted by her Rook, delivering the mating move.

Our board at game's end is shown above, and our full move record is below:

1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.b3 d6 4.Bb2 Be7 5.a4 a5 6.d3 O-O 7.Nb5 c6 8.Nc3 d5 9.Qf3 Bg4 10.Qg3 Nbd7 11.h3 Bh5 12.Be2 Bxe2 13.Ngxe2 h6 14.Bc1 Bb4 15. Bd2 Bxc3 16.Nxc3 d4 17.Ne2 Re8 18.f4 exf4 19.Nxf4 b5 20.c3 b4 21. c4 Qc7 22.O-O-O Qd6 23.h4 Nc5 24.h5 Nxb3+ 25.Kc2 Nxd2 26.Rxd2 Rab8 27.Rh4 b3+ 28.Kd1 b2 29.Rxb2 Rxb2 30.Ne2 Rb1+ 31.Kc2 Qb4 32.Qc7 Qb2# 0-1

And the adventure continues.
