Attack with LarryC: It’s Only Me

Opening: E12, C04: Queen's Indian, French

Player(s): Miles, Panno, Kovacevic, De Moura Santiago

After showing us a nice tactical combo, Larry dedicates this episode to Tony Miles. Here is an extract of Larry's annotation to the game he shows us today: I first met Tony Miles in 1973 at the Lone Pine event. He was a very lively character known for his wit and eccentricities. He would drink quart after quart of milk during his games and go through an elaborate and distracting routine of writing his move down before he played it, hiding the move with a large watch, often crossing out his original move. 

After making his move, he would then loudly honk and blow his nose and j'doube the pieces on his opponent's time. Needless to say, these traits did not endear him to many of his opponents, but most players made allowances because of his good humor and very creative brand of play. Miles was a very hard worker at the board. He could grind out long endgames and rarely shrank from wild complications. 

This is a 5 minute preview.
