Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-11-03  patzer2: After getting white out of the standard opening book with 1. e4 Nc6, Anthony Miles secures an advantage, and capatalizes on it with 21. Qxc1 exchanging his queen for white's two rooks. After black's little positional combination here, white's position collapses as black gets a stranglehold on the position with his minor pieces. Although not in an obviously lost position, white resigns as I suspect he probably saw that his position was hopeless -- with a pawn down, uncoordinated pieces and only defensive moves against a GM obviously familiar with these kinds of positions.
Jul-15-04  beenthere240: All white can do it sit back while black move his knight on d7 to c4, g4 or h5.
Jul-14-06  Whitehat1963: Nice puzzle after 29. Qxd3.
