|Mar-17-06|| ||AlexanderMorphy: lol 61. e4 is possibly the hugest blunder i have ever seen!|
|Mar-17-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Is that right? Take a look at b4 from Short-Chiburdinadze.|
|Jun-04-07|| ||Honza Cervenka: <AlexanderMorphy: lol 61. e4 is possibly the hugest blunder i have ever seen!> 61...a4+ can be hardly seen as blunder because black is utterly lost anyway. If 61...Rxe8, then 62.Nf6+. The only question here can be why black did not resign sooner.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||ZIMMIE: move 61..e4 was a big one. black should have resigned on 45.Bxg5+ it was all down hill from there|

|Dec-24-08|| ||WhiteRook48: ha. How come Miles didn't see the White Q's guard on a4?|
|Dec-24-08|| ||Granny O Doul: It's been answered. The only alternative to 61...a4+ was ....resigns.|
|Jan-03-10|| ||The Famous Chess Cat: AAAAHHHHH!!!!
I was playing guess-the-move, and one move I clicked the wrong square by accident, giving me zero points for that move, where I would have had three points, and I finished with 105, but the par was 106... And I would have had 108... :(

After 41.g5 Miles is quite forlorn.

Yet he doesn't consider 41...Nxd4, the main idea being 42.Kxd4 Rc4+ 43.Kd3 Rxf4 44.Bxf4 Kxf7, when Black is up a pawn in an ending that looks to me to be drawn. Meanwhile 42.gxh6 seems to be handled by 42...Nf5, and 42.Nd6 seems to be well met by 42...Nxe5+. Am I missing something here, or did Miles overlook a real opportunity?
|Aug-23-10|| ||DoubtingThomas: I think you're quite right.
It's also worth pointing out (with the computer's help!) that 42.Rf1 wasn't the error it was considered to be at the time, since 44.Nd6! (rather than 44.Kd1?!) wins easily with the idea of Rf7+ and then Rxg7 after which White threatens not only to promote the h-pawn but to play Rg8+ followed by mate.
|Jan-01-11|| ||Gene M: Miles, Short, and Fritz all agree Miles lost on blunder 47.. nf8<d7, which changed the Fritz eval from +0.7 to +3.0.|
Better was 47.. rg2<b; or possibly even n:e5<d7 eyeing 3 pawns as compensation for being down a minor officer.
48. h6<5 destroy's Black's control of the crucial dark squares f6 & h6, squares which White's vicar on g5 wants to use.
