Kibitzer's Corner
May-01-07  hicetnunc: Clash of ideas : black tries to open lines at all costs (9...c6, 11...b5), while white tries to consolidate on his space advantage.

The work on dark-squares, culminating with 12...Bd4!? is remarkable.

This game certainly deserves a 'game of the day' mention.

Jul-20-13  wordfunph: 1...Nc6!?

this was the tournament when Miles, at the opening ceremony, was introduced as the Grandmaster from "The United States of England".

  perfidious: Given Miles' iconoclastic attitude, he probably had a good chuckle over that introduction.
Jul-20-13  parisattack: <wordfunph: 1...Nc6!?>

Miles had a fondness for it, often played 1. ...Nc6 and 2. ... d6.

It is a nice 'Repertoire' move, and popular at least at the club-level if the number of books is to be taken as a guide:
