  ray keene: no its g c lund

brett is a much stronger player

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.
Feb-08-22  Brenin: Nice play by the 14-year-old Ray Keene.
Feb-08-22  Immortal Gambit: Since Mr. Lund has no other game in the database, we can only hope he didn't get fooled again.
Feb-08-22  Immortal Gambit: On second thought that's the wrong song.

Feb-08-22  Amarande: The end, with Black's King at bay on h6 facing mate from behind via seventh rank action, instantly evoked the memory of Janowski vs O Chajes, 1916

  igiene: I'll tip my hat to the new continuation
Take a bow for the new combination
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my board and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get mated again

  HeMateMe: Excellent pun, fine game by CGs contributor Keene.

There doesn't seem to be much play in the position after 14 moves but whites 15th move creates an opening.

  MissScarlett: As suspected, the use of waste in the sense of 'to kill' dates only to the 1960s....American TV has a lot to answer for.

<The Germanic word also existed in Old English as westan "to lay waste, ravage." Spanish gastar, Italian guastare also are from Germanic. Meaning "to lose strength or health; pine; weaken" is attested from c. 1300; the sense of "squander, spend or consume uselessly" is first recorded mid-14c.; meaning "to kill" is from 1964. Waste not, want not attested from 1778.>

  Sally Simpson: :)

Just last week I had that checkmate pattern on RHP.

I'm Black and although three pawns up I was expecting to have to give them back and possibly allow blind swine.

My first though was Rb2 with f4-f3 ideas but then Rxe6 and Rf6+ and a perpetual at the very least. Then I saw the Rb1 mating idea I had been passive for so long snaffling pawns I hardly expected a mate out of the blue.

33...Rb1 34.Rxg5 Rdd1 0-1

Black has a couple of checks Rc8+ then Rc7+ but once the King reaches f6 it is over.

(A nice coincidence and I had to make a post amongst all these Who comments....I was 'Happy Jack' - which at one time I considered as an online Nik.)

Feb-08-22  belgradegambit: Excellent pun. Pairs nicely with this game
Velimirovic vs J Sofrevski, 1965

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Happy Birthday, Mr. Keene! Still remember your excellent 60s book on the Flank Openings. Inspired me to use the Reti-Smyslov and it worked well.

It's in Latin too. "Hoc est vasta" (this is waste land) turns up again and again in the Domesday Book, referring to areas that were ravaged by William the Conqueror as he quelled rebellions in the north of England around 1069.
