|May-12-04|| ||STendefamMuitB: I think this is a very strong player who will become a GM very soon. |
|May-12-04|| ||Okonedomoussa: Bart is a great Belgian player, but somethimes he plays too arrogant like his game against Van Mechelen and Piket
After all he is a great player wat his game against Berkes demostrates. |
|May-12-04|| ||STendefamMuitB: I think if he keeps improving at this speed he may become a strong 2600 gm. But only time can tell how good he will become. But it's a pitty though that he never was champion of belgium youth. A player of his class should definetely earn this title. |
|May-12-04|| ||Okonedomoussa: I do not agree with StendefamMuitB because Bart was all too good when he was 6 years old or something. In Belgium there is none player who can tipp on him. |
|May-12-04|| ||STendefamMuitB: I do not agree with you on this, because thibaut maenhout is already champion of belgium while he's only 14. En Bart didn't win the championchip at the age of 14 and 15 when he was the top seed. So i think he should proof he is the best by participating one last time and to win it. |
|Aug-29-04|| ||nikolaas: There should be more games by him. I think I'll post some (and hope that they come through). |
|Sep-18-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Bart Michiels|
|Dec-23-13|| ||PivotalAnorak: He's just become a GM.|
|Dec-23-13|| ||Captain Hindsight: <May-12-04 TendefamMuitB: I think this is a very strong player who will become a GM very soon.>|
In this regard 'very soon' is kinda relative.
|Jan-17-17|| ||zanzibar: Here's a game, missing from the DB, where he schools Sokolov in the opening:|
[Event "InventiChess GM"]
[Site "Antwerp BEL"]
[White "Michiels, Bart"]
[Black "Sokolov, Ivan"]
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Nd5 Ba5 5.Bc4 Nf6 6.O-O d6 7.c3 Nxd5 8.
exd5 Ne7 9.d4 exd4 10.Qa4+ c6 11.dxc6 bxc6 12.Nxd4 Bd7 13.Re1 d5 14.
Ba6 Qc7 15.Bf4 Qxf4 16.Rxe7+ Kxe7 17.Nxc6+ Bxc6 18.Qxf4 1-0
3...Bb4!? and 7...Nxd5?! are the start of Black's woes.
|Jan-17-17|| ||zanzibar: InventiChess (2010) time controls
<Tempo: 90 minutes for the first 40 moves followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the game with an addition of 30 seconds per move starting from move one.>
Here's a picture of Michiels from the tournament (against Mehr Hovanishian, then current Belgian champion).
In the previous comment's game here is the position after Sokolov's 14...Qd8-c7:
(White to move)

r3k2r /p1qbnppp/B1p5/b2p4/Q2N4/2P5/PP3PPP/R1B1R1K1 w - - 0 15
Sokolov's last move is losing, and even 15.g3 is winning. But Michiels finds a nice, and precise, attraction sacrifice to end the game with style.
(The material is even, but the eval sure isn't)
|Jan-17-17|| ||zanzibar: Here's a little more about InventiChess, from the 2009 version:|
<The InventiChess event takes place on 18-26th September in the Inventi training center, a hundred meters away from the City Hall in the center of the historical downtown of Antwerp in Belgium. This beautiful renovated historical building was the former house of Peter Benoit, former Belgian composer. Nowadays this house is an inspiring environment where sales reps and managers are trained and sales strategies are developed. All the games will be played in the large meeting room on the ground floor.>
