Oct-12-07  gambitfan: A very interesting French Tarrasch annotated by Raymond Keene
Feb-08-09  xrt999: Game of the day suggestion: How about "Ray Keene wins a pawn". Kind of like "Mr Smith goes to Washington"?

This is Geller. This pawn would get you nothing other than 40 moves of perplexingly deep calculating chess, pared down to the absolute most minisculest of advantages: Black queens in 2 moves, white in 3. 0-1

Very nice game.
