Aug-09-04  white pawn: Man, I bet Gert thought he had Miles when he played 15...Qxc3, trapping his queen, but Miles knew the whole time that it was a safe move. Nice!
Sep-14-04  Rowson: Much respect for Miles. Seeing that Qxc3 doesn't trap blacks queen... nice.
Apr-07-05  rochade18: 18.Rd3 fails because of Qc4! Wonderful!
Mar-05-07  ChesterTheJester: Surely 11. Nxe4 leads to a marginally better position for black? (ending with swap off of Queens after Qxc6)
Sep-19-07  Cuellargacharna: Can anyone there show a winning line for black after 18. Nh2? Thanks
Sep-19-07  maxxowar: 18... Nh2 19.Rxb3! axb3 20.Nd2+ Qxd2 21.Qxb3+ Kc1 22.Qa3+ Kb1 23.Rb8+

Instead of 17... 0-0 Miles could end the game faster with 17... Nd2+ then

18.Qxd2 Qxf3
or 18.Rxd2 Rxb3+! 19. axb3 Qxb3+

Jan-28-11  Zorts: 15.b3 seems unecessary; perhaps 15.Qd2 would be a better move?

  Sastre: 15.Qd2 loses a pawn to 15...Nxe4 16.Nxe4 Bxe4. 15.Ka1 or 15.Qe3 would be an improvement on the game continuation.
Jul-01-11  qqdos: <Zorts> 15.b3?? is a losing blunder. "White thinks he has found a clever method of dealing with the threat against his N-c3..." <quote from 1996 book by Keene & Jacobs - A Complete Defence for Black.> At the end with the BQ still trapped, White is unable to exploit this, e.g. 18.Rd3 (or 18.h4 Nd2+! 19.Rxd2 Rxb3+ 20.axb3 Qxb3+ 21.Ka1 Qa3+) Qc4 and the lady escapes! <rochade18>
