Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-03  rochade18: Good fight - good knight! Black knows how to use his two knights.

There are some moves which are risky like 14.gxf6. I wish I could calculate my moves like Miles did in this game.

Nov-16-03  fred lennox: I'll agree with <rochade18> about the knights. Tony Miles is one of the greatest wizards with the knights. Superb in handling outposts for example. His openings and general strategy is often orientated around the knights.
Jan-28-09  YoungEd: 20. ♘e5 looks like a brilliant move at first, but ends up being a miscalculation. White seems to think that Black will retreat or protct the g4 ♖ on move 21, and then regain the piece with a rook invasion by 22. ♖xc7. But when Black just plays 12. ♖xg3 instead, he wins two pieces for a rook. White's game collapese shortly after.

<20.Ne5> was an interesting move but there must some better opportunities like <20.h3> or <20.Nh5>
