Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-03  AdrianP: This was a high calibre scalp for GM Keene... patient and impressive technique. Gligoric's Rxe3?! exchange sac looks dubious but there doesn't seem to be anything better. The d-passer was a monster.
Nov-19-05  Hemmeireoid5: Hello just had a look at this game. I was wondering if anyone has any comments on the following move for white.....

19: Be7

I am probably getting way in over my head but the idea is to threaten Ng5 and force a smothered mate with Nf7 a few moves later.

e.g. 19:Be7 Rae8 20. Ng4

Thanks for your comments.

Jan-13-06  aktajha: you mean 20. ng5 ?? (of course ... Qxg5.)
Jan-16-06  aktajha: erhm.... I mean't 20. ... Bh6 and then taking knight with bishop and if the bishop takes, only then Qxg5

  ray keene: after 19 be7 the obvious reply is ---rf5 controlling g5 and c5 and preparing the resource ---re5, tho there are also other ideas in the postion of course
