|Aug-05-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Instructive analysis from Ray Keene in the opening of the day. |
|Aug-05-04|| ||who: In the final analysis, what's the point of 27 Bh4? Would Be1 be more useful? |
|Aug-05-04|| ||Sneaky: I don't think that 27.h4 necessarily has a point other than to illustrate that White has no good moves. 27.e1 would lead to exactly the same mate in the notes: 23. Bb3 Nc3+ 24. bxc3 Qxc3 25. Kc1 Qb2+ 26. Kd2 Re7 27. Be1 Rd8+ 28. Bd5
Qc3+ 29. Kc1 Qa3+ 30. Kd2 Qe3# |
|Aug-05-04|| ||who: You're right <Sneaky> - I meant Bf2, which stops Qe3 |
|Aug-05-04|| ||Sneaky: In that case 27.Bf2 Rd8+ 28.Bd5 Qc3+ 29.Kc1 Qa3+ 30.Kd2 Bc3+ 31.Kd3 Ba5+ 32.Kc4 Qc3+ 33.Kb5 Qb4# |
|Oct-27-04|| ||ray keene: in the past few days kibitzers have highlighted my wins v miles 1973 and 1975-and speelman 1973-a much better game than the one with speelman is this one against john nunn. |
|Sep-16-06|| ||WannaBe: One has to appreciate the last comment by Mr. Keene. <[White resigns] on account of the amusing mate...> |
I have never seen, probably never will see the word 'amusing' along/next to the word 'mate'. Thank you for the notes, Mr. Keene. =)
|Sep-16-06|| ||RandomVisitor: 18.Bf2 = .
19.Kb1 was better than what was played.
|Sep-16-06|| ||RandomVisitor: Perhaps 22...Qb6 was better due to 22...Qb4 23.Bb3 Nc3+ 24.Ka1.|
|Sep-16-06|| ||AbhinavAsthana: Thank You <ray keene> for the wonderful notes.|
|Sep-16-06|| ||chrisowen: Man vs boy. Black's 10..Qh4+ and white's a pawn short of the attack.|
|Sep-16-06|| ||kevin86: A very cagey game by black. What started out as a kingside attack adjusted quickly when white castled on the queenside. Not only did white not escape his troubles,they actually became much more acute.|
|Sep-16-06|| ||hitman84: A wonderful mate sequence.|
|Sep-09-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: For others who might be interested, here is the full text of GM Keene's annotation referred to by <WannaBe> in his posting of <Sep-16-06>:|
"[White resigns] on account of the amusing mate 23 Bb3 Nc3+
24 bxc3 Qxc3 25 Kc1 Qb2+ 26 Kd2 Re7 27 Bh4 Rd8+ 28 Bd5 Qc3+ 29 Kc1 Qa3+ 30 Kd2 Qe3 mate."
|May-03-10|| ||James Bowman: Mr Keene that indeed is a very nice game and your annotation 10. Nxd5 seemed logical and more correct even to me.|
|Jun-13-12|| ||HeMateMe: Two heavy hitters in British chess--Keene and Nunn. Nunn is probably 16 in 1971, not quite the measure of Ray Keene. |
I realize that Nunn, of all people, can find a mate in ten, but I still wonder if GM's don't resign too early, just in case their opponents don't see the mating net.
