|May-06-05|| ||Larsker: <Evil Keenevil> Any relation with Ray?|
|May-06-05|| ||Nickisimo: I guess you could say he has a "keen" eye for combinations...right? right?|
|May-06-05|| ||ChessChimp: <cu8sfan> TRAINER'S NOTE: Patzee (ChessChimp) is sensitive about being evolutionarily-challenged. Considering what he has to work with, some of us think his observations can be rather astute. Graciousness and empathy are advantages which superior primates like us sapiens have a responsibility to exemplify to our lesser cousins. He's a good chimp. Patzee just lexigramed (LIKE) (STILL).|
|May-06-05|| ||reepicheep: I thought this game was incredibly exciting...it seemed like Keene was going for broke at move 1...inspiring|
|May-06-05|| ||ChessChimp: <cu8sfan> (CUB) (GOOD) (BALL) (GOOD) (GOOD) (24.Rdg1) (GOOD) (MORE) (BLACK) (PONY) (WORRY) (NO) (FOOD?)|
|May-06-05|| ||RookFile: Has Keene ever lost a game of chess?
The only games of his I see in print
are those where he wins in a
|May-06-05|| ||keypusher: At the end I thought 34...♖xe2 35 ♕xe2 ♗c3+ but 34...♗g3 is obviously stronger.|
|May-06-05|| ||zb2cr: I saw the key move, 31...Qxc4 and the Queen interposition. I didn't see the win after 33 ... Bxb2+, so after some time scratching my head, I looked at the followup to 33 ... Bxe1 and concluded that 34 Qxe2? would be met by 34 ... Rxe2; 35 a4, Bc3#. But I faltered at the end. I concluded Black had a won position after 34 ... Rxe2; 35 Qxe2, Bc3+; 36 Qb2, Bxb2+; 37 Kxb2, Be4. Oh well. |
Oh, <Larsker>, the name is spelled
|May-06-05|| ||YouRang: I guess I did what several others did. I saw the queen sac (Qxc4 followed by Bxc3+), and I glanced at taking the rook on e1 instead of the queen on b2.|
But didn't notice the clever trick of circling the bishop back around to e5 to snare the queen after all! Great chess.
|May-06-05|| ||kevin86: I saw that black could gain two rooks for the queen and take the advantage-but i missed that the queen would fall also.|
|May-06-05|| ||donhart: <chessgames.com> I found the solution in seconds. If I can get a Friday puzzle, it doesn't deserve to be a Friday puzzle. I don't even get the Tuesday puzzles!|
|May-06-05|| ||keypusher: <donhart>, I think a lot of people spotted 31...♕xc4 very quickly. But if you worked out everything to 34...♗g3 in seconds, that is indeed remarkable. |
<z2bcr>, we both saw 34...♖xe2. It's not as good as Keene's move, but it still wins, doesn't it?
|May-06-05|| ||WannaBe: <RookFile>
|May-06-05|| ||Shubes82: Why do we have to see a Ray Keene game like every other day now?|
|May-06-05|| ||hintza: You don't "have to see" any games.|
|May-06-05|| ||cjhasbrouck: Got another Friday puzzle. That's like 5 in a row for me. :)|
Probably the most beautiful finish I've ever seen by Keene.
|May-06-05|| ||DanielBryant: <fian> I'll admit that I wanted to take the queen.|
|May-06-05|| ||Rocafella: What do people keep saying, friday puzzles and tuesday puzzles etc for. Does the day of the puzzle determine it's difficulty?|
|May-06-05|| ||WannaBe: <Rocafella> Usually Monday (easiest) to Sunday (hardest)|
|May-06-05|| ||Rocafella: <WannaBe> Ahhh thanks a lot,I am enlightened :D|
|May-06-05|| ||YouRang: I was wondering if white, instead of playing 34. Bxe2 had played a4 (to give the white king much needed room to move).|
But that, I believe, would be followed by either
35 Qxc3 e1=Q+
36 Qxe1 Rxe1 .
- Or -
35 Bxe2 Bxb2+
36 Kxb2 Rxe2+ .
Either way, white is in bad shape.
|May-06-05|| ||Halldor: I found the right line but only for the first moves (to clear the way for the bishop because the two bishops could possible mate the badly placed King) - But I didn't see 33...Bxe1! damned! - I made this line: 33...BxQ? 34. KxB Rb8+ and if 35. Kc3 Rb1 or 35. Kc1 Rc8, but White is better and I've blundered everything for Black...|
Still I'm satisfied, it's friday..., mondays are better for me...
|Dec-30-05|| ||Ludamad: this game had a great finish|
|Sep-21-13|| ||quinlan: Simply brilliant!!|
|Feb-24-17|| ||Benzol: This game was played in the Lloyds Bank Masters|
