I'm glad you're enthusiastic but 5 of a kind unfortunately it is not a thing in PokerChess. If you are fortunate enough to queen a pawn and draw 4 queens (and hold on to them for the duration of play) you have a VERY high probability of winning in the High Hand Showdown following Checkmate. Hope that answers your question.
