The notes are all plagiarised, obviously.
How plagiarised? Let's take a look.
The unsurprising answer is that much of the column is plagiarised word-for-word, or virtually word-for-word. Readers are surely used to this by now, so we'll spare you the running commentary, just show the notes for comparison and then come back at the end for an observation or two.
1. White's move seventeen.
2. Black's move seventeen.
3. White's move nineteen.
4. White's move twenty.
5. Black's move twenty.
6. White's move twenty-three.
7. White's move twenty-four.
8. Black's move twenty-six.
9. White's resignation.
One observation I'd like to make is that in one section, Ray's hamfisted copying and cutting causes him to lose the sense of the original, of which he removes the most important part.
Where at Black's seventeenth Ray writes
because the whole point is to illustrate's Black's understanding of the system which he played, which brought him a quick and sensational victory.
This might not be Ray's purpose, naturally. But if not, he might try writing his own notes, mightn't he?
But that's a side-issue to another sorry episode of grotesque and blatant plagiarism. My Great Predecessors Again?
No. This time, Ray was plagiarising Revolution In The 70s, which is Part One of the series Garry Kasparov On Modern Chess.
It was published by Everyman in 2007. The game appears on pages 28 to 31.
