  • Tony Miles

    was found dead in his flat in Birmingham on November 12th, 2001. He was 46 years old.

    When I was successful as a youngster in Hesse (i.e. about 1973), Tony was Junior World Champion. U20 of course, because other classifications didn't yet exist. Soon after he became the first british Chess Grandmaster ever !

    At the European Team Championship 1980 in Sweden, he provoked the World Champion in a nearly unbelievable manner and even won that game !

    After 1. ... a6 Karpov didn't dare his own eyes and after 2. ... b5 his skin turned tomato red. After the game he used the word insult.

    Game No. 2 is a further win with black versus the world champion.
    Game No. 3 is the decisive game of the junior world championship Manila 1974 versus the representive of the Soviet Union.

  • I myself saw Tony Miles during the Olympic Games 1972 in Munich, where the German Junior Chess Federation held a big meeting at the same time with the first European Junior Team Championship. I remember me amused, when I saw the opponent of Tony at the match England vs. Yugoslavia writing down the name Miles literally transcribed letter for letter to cyrillic, whereas I would have expected a transcription based on phonetics.
