  offramp: Super Miles! Here is a good test for you: Why didn't Miles play 15...Bxg2? Why wait a move?

  Chessical: Miles had to prevent f4 which allows the White K to escape, hence <15...Bf3!!>.

Dizdarevic after <15...Bxg2?> could then have played 16.f4 Qh1+ 17.Kf2 Bxf1 18.Rxf1

Dizdarevic could not take the B as he would be mated: <16.gxf3> Rf6 17.Ne5 Rh6.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Shades of Lasker-Bauer! Indeed, I can't believe Dizdarevic had forgotten that one. The double Bishop sacrifice is always a welcome break from the usual tedium.
Jun-25-04  Sylvester: What was the name of the guy who had a really cool collection of Miles's games?
Jun-25-04  mjk: <Chessical> follow-up: f4 vacates f2 so that 15...♗xg2 16.f4 ♗h3 keeps the ♔ in, but allows 17.♕f2.
Jun-25-04  morphynoman2: Take a look on Lasker-Bauer kibitzing. This is another game for the interesting Double Bishop Sacrifice collection, by AdrianP
Jun-25-04  Ed Caruthers: The AdrianP collection is very cool. Did you see that Miles actually has two double bishop sacrifices in his career: Miles vs Browne, 1982
Jun-25-04  AdrianP: Cheers chaps, this one's gone in the collection.
Jun-25-04  chessamateur: Bishop Sacrifices always nice as usual. I love it.

  kevin86: Didn't we do this bishop sac schtick last week? lol

Black plays miles ahead of his opponent.

Jun-25-04  Zembla: Great play, but Miles still would not have a quick win if Black persisted with best play. I had a tough time against Fritz from the end position.
Jun-25-04  themindset: really, what's crafty say about this final position?
