    Happy Tony Miles day all. The great man would have been sixty today. I'm sure many people here are familiar with his amazing win against Karpov back in 1980, imagine the cheek of playing 1. ... a6 against the current World Champion, it still makes me smile today!

    Unfortunately I can't post the game here as it gets truncated, but feel free to go through it (with notes from Miles himself) on chessgames.com:

    Another one gone too soon. There's a nice tribute to him on Chandler Cornered (you'll have to find it yourself)

    Hi,

    I still get the occasional thank you about this one.
    When I first posted it the response was humbling.

    I've just discovered someone has link it to Tony's page on Wiki.
