  IMlday: Rather surprising that (very) young Dlugy manages to hold the draw here!
Dec-21-05  Norman Glaides: Yeah, what were you playing at Ray?

  ray keene: i was partly responsible for this-max quickly got a lost position-gave up hope rather obviously and spent his time running round the hall with friends-i took him aside during the game and said he shd always concentrate and never give up and he wd never became a gm if he adopted a frivolous attitude. big mistake-he sat down and concentrated and when i goofed on move 30 (rxd4 wins easily) max expertly held the draw!
Dec-21-05  Norman Glaides: There always seems to be some sort of anecdote attached to your games - ah well, at least you've never been accused of embezzling $9 million.

  ray keene: i take it that all the charges against max have been dropped and that he either is or soon will be a free man-i very much look forward to his write up of this experience-there may be a hollywood film in it!
Jan-14-06  HardBoys: I don't know about 16 Ne5.
16 Ne4 is one move.
For some reason tho, the Tal-like
16 d5! keeps springing to mind.
You must have looked at this briefly,
Ray, and of course, 16...b4! is
the next answer. But did you look
at just playing 17 Ne2! then?
Something takes on d5, and you get
to f4, which was a problem in the game. ...g6, Qc2 (much stronger now that a knight is on f4) - a pawn
moves up(so that the Q guards), and
then d5 drops. This needs looking into.

  ray keene: as i said-30rxd4 wins easily-after bc5 i just defend with my other r, return the exchange and the good n v very bad b endgame is an easy win for white-there were other possibilities earlier but i had a clear win in mind-which i achieved only to goof it up.

  Eric Schiller: Max won this tournament, though he delayed the prizegiving because he was enjoying another board game: Grandmaster! That's a game I invented that has a goal of cheating your way to the World Championship, and it was popular at the time.

Ray might recall that we played at his place all night long, accompanied by many chess friends and a seemingly unending supply of booze.

I have always wanted to turn it into a PC game, but never got time to finish it. The programming is fairly simple so if anyone here wants to give it a try, I'd be happy to help.

The game is a standard board game, where you roll dice and land on squares, sometimes picking up "social" cards (seduce someone's girlfriend to make them play poorly) or "scandal" cards (get caught bribing officials). In tournament, players can buy and sell points from other players or tournament officials. It is based on mostly real chess scandals, though exaggerated for comic effect.

Apr-08-06  InspiredByMorphy: <clocked> Nice catch! 20.Nf4! Qxe5 21.Bxg6 fxg6 22.Qxg6+ Kh8 23.Qxh5+ Kg8 24.Ng6 (winning the exchange) ...Qg7 25.Nxf8 Bxf8 26.Qe8 with a possible Rd8 to follow. White has two passed pawns on the kingside, with the rook(s) to back them up. If black takes the queen away from the defense of the king via 26. ...Qf7 for example, after 27.Qxf7+ it becomes easier for white to march the passed kingside pawns. In a nutshell, 20.Nf4! prepares a kingside invasion, gives white a clear initiative, and throws any plans for black of a queenside attack out the window.
