Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: A great win against Miles by the then very young UK GM (and chess author) Joe Gallagher.

Gallagher is perhaps another "ordinary" GM like - for me - Hector and Oral - who is a good model for lower players. In this game, he pushes and bullies right from the start and one can sense that Miles never really settled, and Gallagher kept the pressure on right until the end.

  offramp: Didn't Gallagher finish bottom of the London tournament that Glenn Flear won? I seem to remember that he went hrough the tournament without a single draw.
Oct-12-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: Don't know, <offramp>. At least he has some good games like this to think about and console himself.

  offramp: I mean he won quite a few games and lost quite a few - but he didn't draw one game.

Aug-21-05  psmith: 18. d6! is a beautiful move and much better than the obvious 18. Rxf7.

After 18...exd6 19. Nd5! if Black plays 19... Qd8, White wins with 20. Nf6+ Kf8 21. Nxg6+! fxg6 22. Qxg6 and Black is defenseless in spite of being a piece and a Rook up. (Found with the help of a computer.)

  Turmangriff: Just started looking into the Tartakower Variation - wouldn’t 21 Nxc6! finish a little quicker?
