Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-06  limeaway: Wow. An incredible crush by Miles!
Which reminds me. I need to check
on his big Tilburg win. Don't know the
date (late 80's?) but can get it
by Miles vs. (and then you have
to know several of the players at
that Tilburg - Ljubojevic [playing
at another table in protest, when
the organizers wheeled out a horizontal table to accomodate Mile's bad back - at the same time that he
was running away with the tournament],
Korchnoi, etc.)
Jan-17-06  limeaway: Mile ties for 1st place!
Korchnoi: "The strength of a convalescent is enormous..."
Dec-23-06  aazqua: Ah Gert. Just couldn't leave well enough alone. "I know", says Gert, "I'll pawn roll his king protection and level him with my big pieces." Just didn't quite work out that way, did it.

  offramp: The first meeting of Miles and Ligterink.

Over 11 years the result between them was Miles 5, Ligterink 0, draws 1.

Miles was a very strong, Larsen-like Grandmaster who could get positions like this (move 27) against other GMs.
