Nov-25-09  jerseybob: The similarities - and dissimilarities - between this game and game 5 of the 1972 Spassky-Fischer match fascinate me. I'm trying to figure out why black(Keene) played 11..Kh8 instead of 11..h6. (In the analagous position in Spassky-Fischer neither player was yet castled). It looks like black intended to follow up Kh8 with Ne7g8 but changed his mind, perhaps not liking 12.f4,Ne7g8 13.f5 (13.fe5,de doesn't seem to do much). In Gligoric-Keene, is the line 11..h6 12.f4,Ng6 playable, or is h6 too dangerous? Perhaps GM Keene could weigh in on this, and answer another question: why, if he intended to play the Huebner variation, he committed so soon to king-side castling.

  ray keene: its quite simple really-i had forgotten that white cd take on e5 on move 13 instead of attending to his knight on h4-it was an attempt to improve on the so called hubner variation which misfired. btw i was playing the "hubner" line years before hubner-see my game which i will reference in my next kibitz
