Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-14-03  Emil Tyson: Tony once called this his favorite game. It won the junior world championship for him.
Aug-14-03  xu fei: What exactly is the correct continuation if 17.fxg4? I had a lot of trouble refuting this; can i get some help on this one?
Aug-14-03  PVS: 17...Ne4 18. Qg2 Qh4+.
Aug-14-03  xu fei: <PVS> Thanks. I kept thinking 17...Nxg4.
Aug-15-03  Jonber: Taking the bishop on g4 would be truly disastrous for White, because the f-pawn is deflected from the defence of the vital e4-square, leaving the gates wide open for a truly brutal attack from Black:

17.fxg4?? Ne4! 18.Qg2 Qh4+ 19.Nf2 Re8 20.Be2 Nd4 21.Kf1 Nxc2 22.Qf3 Nxf2 23.Qg3 Qxg3 24.hxg3 Nxh1 25.Bxa6 Re1+ 26.Kg2 Bxb2 27.g5 Bxa1 28.Nd2 Bd4-+

Even with the best defence, White will still loose a queen, two rooks, a knight and two pawns for a queen and a pawn. Many variations will also lead to direct mating attacks.

Aug-15-03  Ashley: After 17...Ne4 18.Qg2 Qh4+ also possible is 19.Ke2 Nd4+ 20.Kd3 Nc5+ 21.Kd2 Bh6+ 22.Ne3 Re8 and white can resign.
May-24-08  apexin: what a brilliant game by miles.

  whiteshark: Miles won the World Junior Championships of 1974 in Manila by a margin of 1.5 points (and with it earned the IM title) securing the title with a smashing win against Alexander Kochyev in the penultimate round.


Nov-06-09  jerseybob: 9..e6 was Miles' "improvement" over 9..Nd7 as in his 1973 game w/ J. Littlewood(qv), but 10.OOO(instead of 10.Nbd5!?) might've kept an edge, according to the BCM.
