  ray keene: thanks for the compliment-maybe 18 e5-magnus C prefers 12...b5 as being more aggressive-see his game v polgar

  ray keene: i think just nxh7 is good for black
Jun-21-09  PaulLovric: Thankyou Grandmaster Keene. the text moves show the knight to be the piece that causes whites downfall in the end. i was thinking trade some pieces after 20...gxh7+ 21.nxh7 21...rxh7 and the outcome may have been different. perhaps McCurdy, included this in his calculations, what do you think?
