|Apr-11-15|| ||Dionysius1: Hi GM Ray Keene. I read in your Times column today about your recent trip to N Ireland for a simultaneous display. I hope my compatriots treated you well and you enjoyed your stay|
|Apr-11-15|| ||zanzibar: Having a little fun with Raymond.
|Apr-15-15|| ||MUNGOMYERS: MR Keene why if you have over 1000 wins dont we have ray keene's 100 best games i for one would love to study your games in a great book lots of other uk gm's have books miles short plaskett adams etc please it would be a great seller reading your thoughs would be great :-)|
|Apr-20-15|| ||MissScarlett: Mr. Ray, I see you lurking, and I know you're always on the look-out for rare gems for your daily produce, so how about this:|
Capablanca vs Lupe Requena, 1916
Unless Winter can prove otherwise, I say it hasn't seen print for 99 years. And you can sideswipe Nigel Short into the bargain!
|Apr-23-15|| ||ray keene: I have published three books of my games, Becoming a Grandmaster, Batsford out of print but doubtless available on Amazon. Also Grandmaster Strategy and Grandmaster Tactics which are in print with Hardinge Simpole Publishing. Northern Ireland was great. I met two former Lord Mayors of Belfast . Thanks for general best wishes, fotos interesting game etc..and happy St George's Day !|
|Apr-23-15|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Kingpin is a good resource for articles by "Raymondo" (aka the Penguin).|
Amazing Ray has never sued.
|Apr-23-15|| ||MissScarlett: Celebrating St. George's Day:
Steinitz vs J Baker, 1868
|May-07-15|| ||ketchuplover: Mr. Keene will be holding a 20 player simul for MS on May 16th at 1pm in the maple room at fairfield halls park lane croydon|
|Dec-11-15|| ||Joshka: Amazing, but Garry's Queen Sac against Kramnick in Munich, 1994...actually came form a position you had first in 1966 against A. Holaszek!! I'm sure you were aware, but?|
|Dec-11-15|| ||ray keene: You are right. Of course neither of us at the time remotely considered giving up Blacks queen like Kasparov did!|
|Dec-11-15|| ||Joshka: Thanks Ray, I guess I don't feel so bad when even you can admit, you hardly even gave it a thought. Now that's interesting for me cause I would ASSUME GM's/IM's....look at all kinds of variations, that patzer's like me, would not even waste their time on. For you to admit this makes me feel a bit better somehow:-)......Oh BTW.I'm sure about now a certain Christmas tune is playing all over Britain, and I always wondered WHY it was NEVER played here in America. It is just about one the catchiest tunes I have ever heard and I absolutely love it. As a Brit I thank you for your friendship/Shakin Stevens and The Beatles! Happy Christmas to you and your family:-) |
|Dec-24-15|| ||ray keene: Happy Christmas to you and all at chessgames.com|
|Dec-25-15|| ||redlance: Merry Christmas to you ,Sir !!!!|
|Dec-25-15|| ||HeMateMe: Merry Xmas to you, Ray. When might we be seeing you in the world senior championships?|
|Dec-26-15|| ||ray keene: Thanks so much for Christmas greetings. World Senior? Will think about it !|
|Dec-26-15|| ||Howard: Well, Mr. Keene, are you still in practice? Otherwise, you'll probably have a tough time at the World Senior.|
|Jan-29-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, GM Raymond Keene!!|
|Jan-29-16|| ||Karposian: I wish you a very Happy Birthday, GM Keene.|
|Jan-29-16|| ||moronovich: Happy Birthday wishes from here !|
|Feb-20-16|| ||ray keene: Thanks to everyone who wished me happy birthday. I then went as a guest to Tradewise Gibraltar. Now I am a guest at Bunratty where Nigel Short and Gawain Jones are competing, in my view as joint favourites.|
|Feb-20-16|| ||MissScarlett: Belated felicitations, Ray. I trust you'll be joining me in throwing your not inconsiderable heft behind the Brexit campaign. |
Maybe you could ask Nigel which way he's leaning.
|Feb-24-16|| ||Joshka: <ray keene> Hi Ray, would you be able to settle a name on a pic for us? It looks like Uhlmann to me, but Darga has also been mentioned, but I'll say no to Darga. The pic is Fischer/Tal from 1960 Leipzig Olympiad it's a pretty famous photo. The fellow is wearing a dark suit, standing to Bobby's left, leaning over. let me see if I can post it.|
Fischer vs Tal, 1960
|Jun-06-16|| ||HeMateMe: Ray, any thoughts on the late Victor Korchnoi? I know you worked with him, in the 70s. He was one of a kind.|
|Jun-10-16|| ||diceman: <Joshka: <ray keene> Hi Ray, would you be able to settle a name on a pic for us? It looks like Uhlmann to me, but Darga has also been mentioned, but I'll say no to Darga.>|
Definitly not Uhlmann.
(there are pictures of him playing Fischer in this Olyimpiad)
Don't know what Darga looks like.
Also, most famous players are probably
playing for their team.
Just googled him, doesn't look like him either.
|Jul-09-16|| ||MissScarlett: <Olimpiu G. Urcan @OlimpiuUrcan Jul 1|
From page 30 of the Spring 2016 "Synapsia" (article by Raymond Keene). Does anyone believe his boasts?>
<I have, for example, challenged 107 opponents placed in a giant square around me, at Oxford 1973, and in three hours lost just one game, winning 101 and drawing 5. After the display I could remember all the moves of every single game.>
Ray, I was with you on Brexit, I believe in you now. I bet you can still reproduce all 107 game scores, even forty-three years on. Go on, my son, shut him up!
