Sep-11-04  Giancarlo: 5.Qe2 I find to be intresting, instead of nc3.

6..Be7 was worth considering <ray>, but you went for the check/exchange.

Intresting game. I thought Keene has an advanage with white having doubled pawns, but Black does have a backward pawn of his own. The backward pawn can't be rid of without undoubling white's c-pawns, so it's even that way I guess.

I was hoping to see more kingside attack form you <ray>, IE, use the F file with your rooks, but you looked pretty busy on the QS for most of the game. Well played.
