Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-29-08  jerseybob: I love Keres' fluid piece play in this game, but have never seen another example of Qe2 in high-level play. I saw this game in Barden's Guardian column around '69, and shortly thereafter stationed overseas, tried it in a couple correspondence games. I tried it OTB against Sentef in the last round of the '73 PA Chp., winning in 50-some moves - but NOT because of the opening! That game went 9..Ne5 10.Bb3,Bd7 etc., while Lombardy's 9..Na5 goes in a whole other direction. The Qd2 lines are so exhaustively analyzed I'm surprised Qe2 doesn't show up more often. Or has some refutation been found?
Aug-23-21  Jambow: Second of Paul's game in a row I went over where the opponent didn't Keres about H8 mate.
