  WannaBe: Is the pun based on Beatles?;

  HeMateMe: A splendid time is guaranteed for all! John Lennon saw an old play bill, wrote a song, showed it to George Martin, add a touch of Pepper and you're done!

Dances the Waltz.....

Apr-19-15  morfishine: GM Keene is one my favorite Grandmasters, for a variety of reasons. I admire his positional play, which sets up ensuing tactical combinations. I also admire his own career, which should be a guiding light for those aspiring to improve themselves, whether in chess, or life in general.
Apr-19-15  mruknowwho: Black spends so much time trying to control the D file that he loses the center.
