Aug-21-07  zev22407: 15)..N(f)-d5!! Miles sacs a knight for better development and initiative against white's king.
May-27-11  DiscoJew: Great game from idea-full Tony Miles!
Jul-19-18  Howard: According to the February CL&R, Kavalek had stayed up until 4am (!) that morning analyzing his adjournment with Sosonko, looking for a way to salvage a draw--which he was successfully able to do. This tired him out though for the match against Holland.

Miles "rolled him up with an energetic attack", as CL&R stated it.
