|Jul-03-04|| ||refutor: To GM Keene, when i get 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Qh4+?! played against me on ICC it is referred to as KGD : Keene's defense. Don't tell me you really championed this line? the result of this game was prearranged, correct? (this was ulf's only time playing the king's gambit in the database) |
|Jul-03-04|| ||maddy: hey Refutor, u are not supposed to ask such question to GM. |
|Jul-03-04|| ||acirce: Ulf Andersson playing the King's Gambit, LOL. I didn't know about this game until now.|
Why not <maddy>?
|Jul-03-04|| ||ray keene: i found this defence in an old edition of bilguier in my rooms in cambridge when i was a student-bilguier only gives e4 e5 f4 qh4+ g3 qe7 fxe5 qxe5 |
4...d6 was my innovation which i first used in a game v sir stuart milner barry in cambridge 1971 i think. anyway-i have sent this game along with others to chessgames admin, i think 2..qh4+ is a viable defence. the game with anderssson was a last round effort in the nice olympiad england sweden match where all 4 games were quickly terminated in a package of draws.
|Jul-03-04|| ||refutor: thank you for the explanation. to GM keene and maddy, i meant no disrespect in suggesting the game was prearranged as a draw, i realize that such "packages" happen in olympic events. 2. ...Qh4+ seems a little dodgy to me, but i'm just a weak amateur...how often can black expose the weakened kingside...i can't imagine this being any better than some of the accepted lines with ...g5 where White is forced to push g3 to lever the f-pawn in a castled position. i'm likely wrong... |
|Jul-03-04|| ||IMlday: Larry Christansen went grr grr refuting this with Nc3, he certainly convinced me in the kibitz room, dunno about 'theory'.. |
|Jul-04-04|| ||ray keene: i beleive my milner barry game also had a nc3 in it. 4nc3 d6 nd5 qd8 nf3 c6 nc3 bg4 trade b for n and then operate on dark square strongpoints is a strategy lawrence day shd appreciate. i cetainly dont claim that qh4+ is the best defence to the kg -just an example of chessboard bio-diversity, which lawrence shd also appreciate. |
|Jul-04-04|| ||ray keene: just checking my last two posts-i shd have said that i intended to use d6 against sir stuart milner barry but in fact he tried nc3 qua christiansen- i did get to use the d6 line in a postal game against a russian called ezmakov. |
|Sep-16-05|| ||who: <acirce> I don't know which is weirder Andersson playing the KG or Keene playing 1...e5 : )|
|Sep-16-05|| ||azaris: <who> I'm not sure, I found a couple of games where Michael Basman plays the Ruy Lopez.|
|Jun-23-09|| ||Shams: <Larry Christansen went grr grr refuting this with Nc3, he certainly convinced me in the kibitz room, dunno about 'theory'.. >|
I definitely think 4.Nc3 is the best test here; if ...exf4 5.d4 fxg3 6.Bf4 looks tasty for white. Other ideas are a quick Qd3 (the fork on b5 stops ...Nf6-h5, attempting to challenge the h2-b8 diagonal) and quick castling long.
|Jun-29-09|| ||blacksburg: twilight zone game. Keene plays 1...e5, Ulf plays the King's Gambit.|
|Feb-19-10|| ||I play the Fred: (After 12...Nf6) "This highly-charged position is from Andersson v. Keene, Nice Olympiad, 1974. What did the players come up with? A copy of Irregular Openings will be awarded to the winner."|
|May-05-12|| ||King Death: It's crazy to see solid reliable Ulf Andersson playing White in a King's Gambit and the only explanation I could come up with that made sense was a package deal before I read the kibitzes.|
|May-06-12|| ||offramp: Akiva Rubinstein - who I associate with 1.d4 - played many King's Gambits:
