  Sneaky: I'm a little confused here. 46.Qxf6 was good and would have won the game also, right? ...Qe4+ 47.Kg3 Qe8 is the only defense against mate that I can see.
Jun-12-04  Elrathia Kingi: It looks like it results in perpetual check. In the final position, black resigns because Qc1+ is impeded by the rook. However, if white had captured the bishop and not moved the rook, black could have continued his unhampered assaults. Or so it appears to this novice.

  Sneaky: That's exactly what I was thinking, Elrathia, but after 46...Qe4+ 47.Kg3 where does the next check come from?
Jun-12-04  Chesspatch: <Sneaky>I don't see any perpetual check in 46. ♕xf6 either. And am I the only one who finds 43. ... ♗h8 strange? My theory is, they were both running out of time.

  ray keene: dear all -no it was just after resumption of play and we had stacks of time. miles bishop sac was a joke but i decided the simplest thing was to ignore it since the b cdnt escape-i enjoyed this tournament since i beat both timman and miles in the same event -however my favourite game v miles was hastings 1976 where i sacd the house and mated him starting qb1-i think you will all enjoy that more!! and if you like that try my game against kovacevic 1973 and robatsch 1971.

Jun-12-04  AlexKearns: Wow, a real life grandmaster. Welcome <ray keene> to the site.

I have a question for <> however: how come there is already an avatar for Mr Keene but none for me.

I came third in the Queen's School U10 tournie in 1982, you know, so i'm no unknown.

  kevin86: it is obviously that mate is inescapable-except for an exchange of queens-and a horrible ending

  vonKrolock: the 4...e5 var seems unreliable, just because the sequence till 10...d6 is too pleasant for White, but notice that 11.g3!! is fundamental for a solid advantage
Jun-12-04  WarehouseMan: Hello everyone, just out of curiousity what do you think of 14. b4 for Keene?
Jun-12-04  Woodpusher: I'd answer 14. b4 with 14...Re8 (black can't allow 15.b5 and 15.Ne7+)

  ray keene: the strategy for this game was based on petrosian v botvinnik game 7 from their 1963 world championship match-the opening becomes similar by transposition and some of thr tactical motifs are the same.
Premium Chessgames Member
  ray keene: move 18 is where the petrosianic tactics commence
Feb-15-16  TechnoGuyRob: There's an error in this PGN at move 15, <>
