  ray keene: one of my favourite wins-thanks to chessgames for putting up another 200 or so of my games this week!
Mar-11-09  Shams: and thanks for annotating (some, at least one of) them, GM Keene.
Mar-11-09  CantoQ: Slick shot on 27.Nxb7 , 26.Qf3 was very nice. I always wish for moves with two strong ideas backing them. I find your games an excellent source for instruction. Especially as here, when we are graced with your insight, and process. I thank you on behalf of the myriad of patzers, of whom I in part represent, of whom benefit greatly from such honourable interaction. Your service to Chess is perpetual and priceless. Kudos to GM Keene!

Sep-06-13  Lonnie Lurko: They're super notes.

They were super when they appeared in The Spectator on 3 March 2012

and when they appeared in The Spectator on January 12 2008

and when they appeared in The Times on April 24 1999 (trust me on this one).

They were presumably just as super in any other places they have also appeared.

  ray keene: I had a look-its very interesting but very double-edged given the time control and the nature of the position-thanks-pls do let me know if any other such opportunities crop up!
