    MVL - Ding Liren four queens game

    From Grand Chess Tour final. This (just) breaks the possibly outdated record according to Tim Krabbe's site for the longest 4-queen sequence.

    Ding made an error by allowing the four queens ending; 66...fxg6 67.Qxg6+ was a tablebase win for black. That said, MVL had to find many only moves to survive.

    Black wins by forcing a cross check in a minimum of seven moves!
