Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-04  WMD: 37.Nh1 is an excellent move by Miles to preserve the knight. 37.Ne2 is met by ...Qe1, and 37.Nf1 by ...Qb2. Once he creates a passed pawn, the end is nigh.
Jun-19-12  Brown: Moves like 37.Nh1 are hard to see, but once played make sense, in that White's Q is now free to do what it pleases. The square f2 is protected and the K is safer. It's almost like a piece sacrifice, though it stays on the board as a purely defensive piece.

I think <42..Bxf2> is best met by <43.Qg2>. After White's 43rd, the coiled and subsequent uncoiling of position is aesthetically pleasing.
