Apr-18-06  TenFeetTall: 29 Qf8+!!
Apr-18-06  Shajmaty: Nice game by Ray, but I prefer the lines with 13. Qc2 or even an earlier deviation with 11. Ne4. Was 18. Qc2 a novelty?

  thegoodanarchist: 27...Qh8 is no salvation, due to Black's lagging development. White simply wins material with a fork: 28 Rh7+ Qxh7 29 Rxh7+ Kxh7 30 Qe7+ ( ) and Black loses a rook due to the Bishop being at home.

  fm avari viraf: This line of giving the e pawn looks risky. Only the calibre that of Keene can handle such a position. White's penetration on the seventh rank with Rooks spell disaster as Black cannot defend even by playing 28...Qd8 29.Qe5 threatening mate on Qg7 so to avoid mate the only move is 29...Qg8 and 30.Qf6 again threatening mate on g5 where Black is defenseless. But Keene's Qf8+ is sheer beauty. Again the theme of deflection to put into practice.
