Tony Miles Menu di navigazione VideoThe Amazing Be5 by Tony Miles, First English Grandmaster
Anthony John Miles 23 April — 12 November was an English chess player, the first Englishman to earn the Grandmaster title in over-the-board play.
He learned the game of chess early in life and made good progress nationally, taking the titles of British under Champion and under Champion in  and ,   respectively.
In , Miles won the silver medal at the World Junior Chess Championship at Teesside , his first important event against international competition.
Both he and compatriot Michael Stean defeated the tournament winner Alexander Beliavsky , but were unable to match the Soviet player's ruthlessness in dispatching lesser opponents.
Miles went on to win this prestigious title the following year in Manila , while a mathematics undergraduate of the University of Sheffield.
Taking the decision to pursue the game professionally, Miles did not complete his studies, but, in , was awarded an MA by the University in respect of his chess achievements.
In , Miles became the first UK-born, over-the-board chess grandmaster , narrowly beating Raymond Keene to the accolade. Miles had a string of good results in the late s and s.
George Defence. It is often said that Miles learned the line from offbeat openings enthusiast Michael Basman , but in his book Play the St.
George , Basman asserts there is no truth to this. Miles beat Karpov again three years later in Bath in a game that was part of the BBC 's Master Game series, but it was shown only by the co-producing German television network, due to a BBC technicians' strike at the time of broadcast.
Miles won the British Championship just once, in when the event was held in Torquay. His prime time as a chess player was the mids. On the January Elo rating list , he ranked No.
One of his best results occurred at the Tilburg tournament in , where, from a strong field, he emerged sole winner by a clear margin of one and one-half points.
The following year, he tied for first at the same event with Robert Hübner and Viktor Korchnoi , playing several of his games while lying face down on a table, having injured his back.
For weeks, afterwards, the Russian magazines even avoided publication of Miles's first move, while he poked fun at them by calling it the Birmingham Defence, after his home city.
The game received little publicity due to a television technicians' strike. Miles was ranked for a decade among the top 10 grandmasters, but despite his successes, he never reached the candidates round of the world championship.
The problem was that he globetrotted too much, travelling from one tournament to another with hardly a break, leaving insufficient time for preparation and rest.
His best result came in at Tilburg, where he won a top-class event by one and a half points, beating three world-title candidates.
In contrast, he took on Garry Kasparov in in a non-title series but lost by a crushing with one draw. His wry comment afterwards was: "I thought I was playing a world champion, not a monster with 22 eyes who sees everything.
He was again successful at Tilburg in , when he tied for first prize in a remarkable way. He began badly, then injured his back.
The organisers took pity and allowed him to play the rest of his games stomach-down on a hospital massage table.
The life of a professional chess-player is not as glamorous as others would believe. In Tony suffered a nervous breakdown.
First I want to scotch some of the garbage that has been written recently, describing Tony as if he were the Hermit of Harborne.
He will be remembered with great affection by chess players all over the world. Becoming a member is free , anonymous , and takes less than 1 minute!
