  ray keene: <rowson> i wd like to point out that i have supplied notes to a considerable number of my losses and have sent these to admin-they simply have not been put up yet. i will now ask admin to confirm this and i wd ask you to withdraw your comment pls.
Premium Chessgames Member That's absolutely right. The notes we have online right now are mostly from his book "Grandmaster Strategy", the format of which is Keene commenting on many of his fine wins; however he has also sent us literally reams of notes on all manner of games. Look for these new annoated games later in the month.

  ray keene: after 6...nd4 i wd doubtless have played bd3 and castled.the whole theme of my opening was to avoid...bxc3 at all costs
Sep-10-04  clocked: after 6...Nd4 7.Nc3 Ne6 8.Nd5 avoiding any mess
May-27-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: Can't black play 26. ...Qb5
May-27-05  Ernest van der Sar: <Ray Keene> I think it is really nice to read your comments and explanation of purposes. It certainly helps me to make better choices on the board. Thanks for that!
May-27-05  Ernest van der Sar: <Rowson> I think the only one who has the real human ego, is the one who thinks it's logical that others only want to comment their own wins and/or good stuff.

  ray keene: if 26...qb5 then rxe5 is very unpleasant for black
Apr-26-06  hitman84: Nice game!

black delays Nf6 hoping for Bc3 but after 11.f4 white has gained the timing!

I think 11...a5 was a desperate try for a counter

I like this game very much MR.Keene you just dismantled the idea of black delaying Nf6 OTB!

Premium Chessgames Member
  ray keene: <hitman84> yes this was certainly an all time favourite of mine
