    I sat there working out a lovely win v vandervelde
    then as it got closer to the knock out blow...I'm White.

    I was convinced 6. e5 was a blunder, and only after 9. Ngxe2 I looked into chess base and found out it was genuine variation!
    Even more, Short defeated Miles on tournament in London 1976 with that!

    On chessgames.com one of kibitzers suggested 11...g5, and I took it, it looked I trapped the Bishop.
    But no.

    Instead of Nxc7+, Re4 gave more fight.

    Not looked at Re4. Nxc7+ looked like a shot.

    Look at this game.:

    Originally they gave that game to Murray, I played it.

    Very entertaining game.

    Nigel Short commented on chessgames.com that his game in this line was not against Tony MIles.

    HI vandervelde,

    Next time we play it's your turn to sac both Queens.
    This is our other game. I tried to set up a fortress
    on the dark squares covering the while board.
    vandervelde slipped up trying to get in. (move 28)

    Well, Mister, I'll do nothing of a sort, Mister.
    I loved my mom and my marriage hadn't been a living hell.

O-O-O g5 {Trying to the trap the Bisho ...[text shortened]... carried on.} 24... Kg8 25. Rxg7+ Kxg7 {And bishop+ wins the Queen.} 26. Bh6+ Kxf6 {0-1.} [/pgn]
    A lot of material to sacrifice for an attack. This was a bit too deep for me. Interesting though.
