Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-14-03  fred lennox: One of Miles finest. Sax, a great tactical master plays brilliant too. Alekhine noted that Queen exchanges is often not a simple matter, that even GM's can error in it's evaluation. I'd imagine to exchange a queen for three minor pieces is even more delicate and complex, leaving piece-point counting far behind.
Jul-14-03  drukenknight: I thought white would do better with 14 Bd2
Jul-15-03  fred lennox: Looks good but the response...Rd3 spoils it. 15 Bxb4...Rxd1, Rxd1-either rook has it's drawbacks...Nxb4, better game for white.
Aug-14-03  Emil Tyson: 13...Rxf3! was a move that caused white some problems. 14.gxf fails to 14...Nxd4, threatening...Qxe1+.
Nov-14-03  lordazol: neither 14.Bd2 not gives a good continuation to white,14...Rc3 is enought answer and white must leave second material for the rook.15 Rc1 -pxp

  nasmichael: This is a good example concerning looking deeply at the status of the actual board versus a cursory view of what pieces are active. Miles' team dominated despite the fact that the white queen was present.

  GrahamClayton: White's exchange sacrifice 28.♖e5 is met by the counter exchange sacrifice 28..♖b3.

White could have drawn with 40.♕g7 ♘f5 41.♕e5+ ♔d8 42.♕f5 d3, and the d-pawn can be stopped from queening.

A great, hard fought game by both players.
