|Apr-16-03|| ||refutor: there's an interesting anecdote about this game on http://www.chesscafe.com/geurt/geur...|
this was the tournament where miles' back was too sore to sit in a chair so they let him lie on a massage table. the other players protested. this game was agreed to as a draw before hand...the draw was agreed, but obviously not the moves ;) Dzindzichashvili played his game standing in front of Miles. It looked like a simultaneous display. Drawn after 45 moves. In the last round Miles played Ljubojevic. Ljubo played from a separate table. Miles won. what a bizarre story...
|Apr-22-05|| ||fgh: Lol. White is better developed, he has more space, and he is a pawn up. There is no reason to accept a draw here. |
|Nov-22-05|| ||hnishy: You can read the whole story in chapter 9 of the book "Tony Miles: It's Only Me" by Batsford, 2003|
|Nov-22-05|| ||Chopin: This game is worth analyzing. Hopefully if I have some time, I'll study it.|
|Feb-24-06|| ||Stonewaller2: Anyone defending any no-GM-draw rule should merely have to introduce this game as Exhibit A and rest his or her case. I'm a fan of both players but this one is abominable.|
|Feb-25-06|| ||mack: <Stonewaller> - as hnishy says, see chapter 9 of 'It's Only Me' - Tony was hardly the sort to go for prearranged draws but circumstances meant that a proper game really wouldn't have been possible here. The plan here was that Miles would play sensible moves, Huebner would play what he liked, with white offering a draw at move 5. Miles says he feared that black would go the whole hog and play ...f6 & ..g5, after which he would either have avoided 2.e4 or played it anyway, whack his queen on h5, and then adoube it to g4...|

|Aug-19-08|| ||eternaloptimist: Lol!! What a bizarre game!!!! Obviously a draw was agreed to b4 the game started. Besides, the Englund Gambit isn't that good of an opening anyway.|
|Aug-28-10|| ||whiteshark: <Englund Gambit Complex: <Mosquito Gambit>> A draw wasn't surprising here, as only female mosquitos bite.|

|Mar-15-11|| ||shalgo: Huebner must have been remembering Huebner vs K Rogoff, 1972.|

What a game..especially after reading the comments ... I almost fell off the chair xD.
TA for great fun :)
