It's a nice touch that the final position is the instant the tripled pawns are born-- one imagines Keogh stopped the clock with a wry smile here.

Jul-11-11  Shams: I should add that black's resignation was by no means premature, since as the most cursory of analyses will attest, recapturing on e5 is quite impossible...a fine game by Miles.

  kingfu: I love Chess and this game is one reason. It is amazing that The Quiet Game can get REAL loud in short order.

I was reading <Revolution in the 70s> , Volume 1 in Kasparov's series on modern chess the other day. These slow systems began to kick start again in the 70s. They were considered harmless for decades; then inventive players - and Miles was definately one of them - found the venom inherent in such set-ups.
