Dec-29-04  ConLaMismaMano: This is a great game! I especially liked the pawn sacs.
Jun-01-06  jackmandoo: 21.Bh5! Sharp tactics. Nice to look at.
Jun-01-06  Ernesto7: Best Keene game I have ever seen and one of the nicest combinations ever starting with e5! Truly a great game
Mar-06-07  benba57: It seems like Keene dominates both sides of all variations of the Benoni.
Mar-06-07  tonsillolith: I'm too much of a wuss to play 12. d6 but a little while after I realized the benefits of it.
Feb-14-08  arsen387: Great game Mr. Keene. And the complete annotation helps to understand and appreciate it in all it's beauty!

  ray keene: Another favourite. I forgot to include Stean in my results against The Miles generation so the overall score for me was : Keene 3 Miles 2
Keene 2 Stean 0
Keene 4 Nunn 0
Keene 1 Mestel 0
Keene 2 Speelman 0
Keene 12 rest 2

Sadly both wins v Speelman were rubbish!

Apr-23-17  morfishine: Great game by GM <Keene>! Terrific all the way through!

I wonder why GM Mestel is labeled a "prodigy" in his bio? Was there some sort of event or occurrence that catapulted Mestel into this illustrious category?

Just wondering
