Chessclub.com joins the chess world in mourning the passing of 
Britain's first Grandmaster - Tony Miles.  His handle was TonyM.  GM 
Miles died in his sleep on November 12 of causes assumed to be related 
to diabetes.  He was a popular member of the Chessclub.com community 
and will be missed as a chess coach, commentator, player, and friend. 

Memorial Tournament
 
  At 2:00pm New York time on Saturday November 17th, Chessclub.com and
  the Tomato family of tournament bots will host a memorial tournament
  in honor of GM Miles.  The format will be a 9 round swiss with a 5 5
  time control.  This will be a thematic tournament with first moves

  famous victory over Karpov (see "examine folgers %00")
