Sep-11-05  atripodi: Does this make you the inventor of this nefarious drawing line against the Averbakh, Mr. Keene?

  ray keene: i think i was shown it by someone and told that suttles wd sac his queen with 9..dxe3 which i later tried against agdestein -i was interested in trying this out with either colour-my current opinion is that white stands better. however suttles didnt and i shd probably have played 10bd2 which seirawan used to beat me in 1982 instead of the drawing line.

  ray keene: i played seirawan several times -my game against him at lloyds bank 1981 turned out to be decisive in getting me the trophy on tie break ahead of him and tony miles-none of my games against him however appear in this database according to a check i just ran-i will have to dig out my 1982 loss with this line since its theoretically important
Sep-11-05  atripodi: <suttles wd sac his queen with 9..dxe3> Speelman and McDonald are very disparaging of this line in their book "The Modern Defence", citing a bad loss by GM Rhode-perhaps your opinion of it is somewhat higher. Also, do you prefer to put your Queen on a6, c7, or d8 after 10.Bd2?

  ray keene: i now doubt its sound-i played qc7 v seirawan but i didnt like it
