Jan-23-09  dhotts: I couldn't figure out what Black accomplished with 11...f6. Maybe he touched the f-pawn as he went to move the g-pawn? Since it seems like Black's position holds with 11...g6. What is White's plan then?
Jan-23-09  NewLine: I just can't tell whether it was a fun game or just a funny game; either way I enjoyed every piece of it...
Jan-23-09  Alpenbock: <Since it seems like Black's position holds with 11...g6. What is White's plan then?> 12.Qe5 and Qh8
Jan-23-09  kalever: White answers 11...g6 by 12 Nxg6 & after either 12...hxg6 or 12...fxg6 13 Qe5+ winning exchange.Probably 11 ...Qf6 would have given less trouble since after 12 Qxf6 gxh6 at least there is some compensation for the doubled pawns in the open g file and the White Queen is off your back.

  Morten: Beautiful mate if black takes the queen on move 14.

Maybe Miles wanted to "castle" by ♔f7, ♔g8 and ♖f8. After 11...f6 12.♘f5 ♔f7, I can't see anything forcing for White. Maybe 13.0-0 with a positional advantage would be the best option for White here.
Jan-23-09  Samagonka: Impressive game with a tremendous finish!

  Once: That's not chess, it's alchemy. Astonishing attack against one of my favourite players. I can feel a heavy analysis session coming on as I try to understand everything that is going on here!
Jan-23-09  arsen387: Like Pillsbury said "Conduct your attack in a way, that when it's run out... it isn't". just like in this game after 18...fxg5 seemed that the worst is behind for blacks, but whites find a way to refresh his attack and wipes black off the board. Very, very impressive game
Jan-23-09  arnaud1959: rnaud1959: <kalever: White answers 11...g6 by 12 Nxg6 & after either 12...hxg6 or 12...fxg6 13 Qe5+ winning exchange.> After 12...fxg6 13.♕e5+ black plays ♔f7, protecting ♖h8 and now if 14.♗g5 then 14...d6. Imo white plays immediately 12.♕e5+
Jan-23-09  kellmano: Unbelievable game. The attack comes in two large sacrificial waves. Were it played by a bigger name, I think it'd be really famous.
Jan-23-09  laskereshevsky: Impressive game...... during the 1984-86 period Miles world rank position was between 14/30 place...

COMPLIMENTS Herr Doctor!

Jan-23-09  njchess: Tony's problems start with the aggressive 8. ... Ne4!? and by 11. Qd6, he is in big trouble. With no piece activity, he must spend moves just trying to free his pieces. Given his poor position, trading material simply helps White. Ouch.

White on the other hand, is more than willing to sacrifice material to maintain his positional advantage. Well played by Cordes to take full advantage of Black's miscue.

  kevin86: White's attack seemed dead when he was able to pick off queen for rook at move thirty.

Black had the grim choice of giving queen for rook or trading queens and ending a rook down. 30...♔h7 31 ♕xh6+ ♔xh6 32 ♖xa8

Jan-23-09  tivrfoa: almost all gotd enter to my game collection =D
Jan-23-09  psmith: Interestingly, Fritz 5.32 (not exactly a new program) running on my couple of years old laptop, comes up with 12. Bg5 *instantly*. Not a move a human can easily see, though once seen it's strength is clear -- but the computer has the advantage of just searching through all moves, including ones that count as "imaginative" when played by a human.

  playground player: Shocking to see Miles get pushed around so hard...
Jan-23-09  jrofrano: I think on move 11 Miles could have played 11. ... e3!? after 12. Rf1 I think black's game might have been more playable...although white's attack looks real strong.

Any thoughts?

Jan-23-09  psmith: <jrofano> after 11...e3, 12. O-O is better than Rf1.

Jan-23-09  WhiteRook48: The Doctor ordered his opponent to run Miles.
Jan-23-09  kalever: <arnaud1959: rnaud1959: <kalever: White answers 11...g6 by 12 Nxg6 & after either 12...hxg6 or 12...fxg6 13 Qe5+ winning exchange.> After 12...fxg6 13.Qe5+ black plays Kf7, protecting h8 and now if 14.Bg5 then 14...d6.>How about 15 Qf4+ and the Black Queen bows out instead the Black Rook.
Mar-21-09  WhiteRook48: two crushing forks
Dec-28-09  Mr2: Amazing game!! Specially 13.Bg5!! and 14.Qe5!!
