whiteshark: "One of his most memorable latter day triumphs was at the Intel World Grand Prix, London 1995, playing against a young Vladimir Kramnik.
The younger Kramnik was not yet World Champion, but still a world’s top-ten player and the clear favourite to win. True to form, in the first game, Miles chose a less than orthodox opening, the pseudo-Trompowsky <1.d4 d5 2.Bg5>, but turned in a fine performance, making a positional knight sacrifice and later a queen sacrifice which forced Kramnik’s resignation.
However, Kramnik levelled in the second game Kramnik vs Miles, 1995, resulting in a blitz play-off in which Miles needed to hold the draw as Black to go through to the next round, but in which he had only four minutes on the clock to Kramnik’s five.
Miles made 25 moves alone in the first minute and in the time-scramble held on for the draw to go through, upon which he stood up and punched the air in delight like a football player to the cheers of an ecstatic audience." Kramnik vs Miles, 1995
