|Aug-22-18|| ||ray keene: An original take on the nine year old....we shd meet during the match!|
|Sep-10-18|| ||MissScarlett: <Ray>, your critics - yes, there's been a few - are upset at your name having been appended to a caption on the fabled chess board at Simpson's:|
How and when did this come about? Do you know when the caption originally dates to?
|Sep-10-18|| ||Diademas: <MissScarlett:... The fabled chess board at Simpson's:>|
For a moment I thought you were referring to this.
|Sep-10-18|| ||MissScarlett: <Sure to be a Collecting Dust Item>|
|Sep-11-18|| ||Diademas: Well, Staunton did have some success with the chessmen bearing his name.|
GM Keene might find a niche into immortality by promoting this merry band of misfits.
|Sep-14-18|| ||MissScarlett: <Ray>, in Staunton's <ILN> column of January 19th 1861, in reply to a correspondent:|
<R.K. - The problem you have sent as original has been published a dozen times at least since it first appeared, four hundred years ago.> #justsaying #irresistible
|Sep-22-18|| ||ray keene: Everyone is invited to see my brand new website Www.grandmasterray.com|
|Sep-22-18|| ||ray keene: Many of the games there link back to
The best ever published record of my games
|Sep-23-18|| ||TheFocus: Nice site, GM Raymond Keene!|
|Sep-23-18|| ||MissScarlett: Perfunctory, impersonal....badly done! If the idea is to sell more books, write new books, better books.|
|Sep-23-18|| ||ray keene: <MissScarlett> no actually the main point was to create an archival record . It also links to my Twitter site where my up to date thoughts can be found. In fact I am working on a new book to cover the Carlsen v Caruana world championship at the invitation of Everyman Chess Publishing. Cheers! |
<The Focus> Thanks for your compliment!
|Sep-23-18|| ||ray keene: On my new website www.grandmasterray.com
It's possible to link directly to my Twitter site @times_chess by pressing on the Twitter icon at the bottom of the home page.
|Sep-23-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Ray,
A wee bit disappointed the site will not be doing a weekly or fortnightly take on chess things or making any comments at all.
I do not have a twitter account and if I was seen buying a copy of the Times in my neighbourhood I'd get slaughtered.
OK. Time to put you on the spot.
Carlsen v Caruana, who will win and go for a score. (just think of kudos you can sneak into the introduction of the Everyman book if you get it exactly right.)
My prediction...who cares what I think?....but Carlsen will win and it will all be over before Christmas.
|Sep-24-18|| ||Parachessus: Nice site, Ray! How about having a "Sargeant Pepper" album cover style collage in the background, with photos of all the chess greats and near-greats behind you? Also, you need to place a king to your right to create a formal balance.|
|Oct-12-18|| ||ray keene: <Sally Simpson> Carlsen to win 6.5 to 4.5
That's my prediction|
|Oct-12-18|| ||john barleycorn: <ray keene: <Sally Simpson> Carlsen to win 6.5 to 4.5 That's my prediction>|
count me in on that one. where to place my bet?
|Oct-12-18|| ||MissScarlett: <Ray>, I haven't been able to get any tickets for the cheap seats. Any chance of smuggling me in, past security?|
|Oct-12-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Thanks Ray,
You were very close with your 'Contenders for the Crown' written in 1994.
Anand and Kramnik made it, Gelfand and Shirov got within touching distance. A wee bit out on the strength of computers. You predicted another decade before a computer would beat a world champion.
In 1994 I would have said even later than that.
Good luck with the book and I too like the prediction. Looking forward to the match and hope to attend at least two of the games.
|Oct-12-18|| ||HeMateMe: Ray, the website looks great! Very regal, very...British! will this fellow be making an appearance?|
|Oct-13-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: <ray keene: Carlsen to win 6.5 to 4.5>|
I like that prediction.
|Oct-13-18|| ||john barleycorn: <MissScarlett: <Ray>, I haven't been able to get any tickets for the cheap seats. ...>|
Try the stand up. and stop grinding benefits out of others.
|Oct-21-18|| ||diceman: GM Keene has an excellent record:
Overall record: +1017 -147 =467 (76.7%)
|Nov-07-18|| ||Caissanist: GM Keene--any remembrances you have of the late Eric Schiller would be quite welcome.|
|Nov-26-18|| ||Joshka: Ray always loved your World Chess Championship
books you published. Now that FIDE has disgraced itself with this terrible format, think they will change?? Your Karpov-Korchnoi account from 1978 started my addiction to the royal game!!! I also thank God above for long classical matches filled with drama and excitement!! Cannot for the life of me understand our present day nonsense! Living in a world I no longer understand!!|
|Nov-27-18|| ||Sally Simpson: ***
I gave up trying to understand this planet years ago. We get by not trying to understand each other.
I'll get Ray's book as soon as it is out, Sadly no wins to get our teeth into but a few games will appear over my board and a few won't. (game 11).
I thought '78 was a well written classic. It could hardly fail with some great games and the off the board incidents described in a funny and wry manner.
I've seen the documentary about it. Worth seeing. All the young Edinburgh players (those born after '78) are gob smacked and loved it.
