Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-19-05  Queens Gambit: Nice sicilian on the uncommon lines of the Keres Attack
Mar-12-06  Topzilla: I really like this Keres Attack,and in the hands of Kasparov..
Sep-03-06  Bufon: I wonder why Kasparov didnt played this Keres-Attack much, its very interesting.
Sep-04-06  euripides: <bufon> probably no-one let him. Most top-flight GMs avoid the Keres by entering the Scheveningen via the Najdorf.
Sep-04-06  nikolajewitsch: <euripides> But that does not make the Keres Attack impossible. 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Be3 e6 7.g4....where is the problem?
Sep-04-06  euripides: <nik> That line is often called the 'Perenyi' and although it can tranpose into lines from the Keres attack it can alo go its own way e.g if Black plays e5 (which is usually met by Bb5+ in the Keres attack). It's extremely sharp, but Black gets more active play than in most lines of the Keres.
Sep-04-06  nikolajewitsch: As far as I know, that is not yet a Perenyi, which emerges only after 7.g4 e5 8.Nf5 g6 9.g5!?, giving the Knight for a sharp attack. After the line I gave Black has plenty of possibilities to play, but I dont see why it shall be much stronger than a normal Keres. The only problem I see is that, if Black does not continue with 6....e6, you have to play the Be3 lines against the Najdorf...
Oct-18-06  TopaLove: It would follow 31 ... Nxh6 32.Qxh6+ Ke8 33.Ng7+ winning the queen.
