  blazerdoodle: ha ha.

Cool game.

Aug-23-12  Melonhead: I am in love.

Nov-30-13  solskytz: ...Qg5, to avoid the White queen check, is a brilliant rebuttal to the capture on g8. The answer, Bxh7, was totally out of place - getting into simply losing tactics.

  perfidious: <solskytz>: Bet this youthful game was a pleasant memory for the mature grandmaster. Miles' eighth move was, indeed, a clever zwischenzug.
Dec-01-13  solskytz: That's what I like about watching games of the great players - you get and learn so many new and clever ideas!

Then when you play, you always feel more inspired, and you are likely to find some ideas of your own at the board.

Earlier today I wiped a FIDE 2000 off the board in 14 moves, 45 minutes (of a game which was supposed to last 6 hours...) Fun times!

Dec-01-13  solskytz: I suppose that his opponent should have just recognized the wisdom of this "in-between move" and gone 9. g3 (or even, with a "zwischen-check" of his own, first 9. Bf7+, then 10. g3)

Then he would have lived to fight another day...
