When Miles declined, Keene believed that offering him money would change his mind. According to Keene, Miles agreed by telephone.
Ray seemed to spend his time politicking and sitting by the hotel pool with his wife. He had no children.

Miles vs Speelman 29 Islington B32 Sicilian 9. If he had lived, how many would he have scored in the last 15 years?
He would have been 61 this year so he would still have been active. Can you update and re-activate? I'd love to see it. I dabble in sketching all types of subjects, boats, airplanes, frontal views of famous people, etc.
It was a puzzle of the day in ! It's hard to believe it's been so long already. I'll drink a few more tonight.
Very nicely done, I love the overhead angle. The effect of the over-sized hands and the quizzical look on Najdorf is striking!
Double exclaim!! Again, thank you sir! What's the significance of Najdorf having three fingers, while his opponent has four?
Najdorf's left little finger is hidden behind his ring finger. If you look at his other little finger you'll see that it is pretty vestigial!
Have you seen which specific game he is playing? It's like that Christmas Quiz. Maybe I'll try again.
Else this thread might get xferred over to Stumpers. I'll add a follow-up reply over on zanchess, that is, if you don't beat me to it. Any chance you could update them?
This is similar to the Miles one. A skill beyond my ken. Miles' sense of humor and absence of respect for chess politicians and indeed any kind of authority were his most endearing features to his fellow players to his last day.
Miles was overtaken by a new generation of British players led by Nigel Short, and was no longer top board in the England Olympiad team.
He attempted a new start, first by transferring his allegiance to the US in , and then taking a home in Germany.
These moves were not successful, but when he returned to Birmingham, his results immediately improved. Miles continued as an active player into his 40s, still ranking among the top in the world and winning three times at Cuba's prestigious Capablanca Memorial.
He captained the Slough chess team which won three British titles, and coached young Midlands talents. His witty, monthly internet column poked fun at the pretentious, and put forward constructive ideas to improve the world chess scene.
He liked offbeat openings, and used an arsenal of rare variations, which he combined with more orthodox systems. His middle game was tough and professional, and he was specially adept in using a small advantage to grind down opponents.
Miles was outspoken but well liked, and will be missed by his many chess friends. His influential legacy is as the pioneer who inspired modern British players to reach international heights.
Im folgenden Jahr gewann er die Juniorenweltmeisterschaft in Manila. Seine schachlich beste Zeit erlebte Miles vom Ende der er Jahre bis zu seiner deutlichen Wettkampfniederlage gegen Garri Kasparow 0,,5 in Basel Bekannt ist sein Sieg gegen den damaligen Weltmeister Anatoli Karpow bei der Europamannschaftsmeisterschaft in Skara Miles schlug Karpow mit den schwarzen Figuren mit der ungewöhnlichen Eröffnungserwiderung 1.
Er gewann das traditionell hochkarätige Turnier in Tilburg und geteilt mit Robert Hübner und Viktor Kortschnoi , wobei er bei seinem zweiten Sieg dort wegen Rückenproblemen einige Partien auf dem Bauch liegend spielte.
Am Nach ihm ist auch die Miles-Variante in der Damenindischen Verteidigung benannt. 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.
A string of good performances culminated in a good showing on the January Elo rating list, where he climbed to a best-ever position of World No.
During this period, there was considerable rivalry with Nunn over who was the United Kingdom's best player, the two protagonists regularly leapfrogging each other in the world rankings.
Nigel Short and Speelman soon added to the competition, as the English national squad entered its strongest period. Never able to qualify out of the Interzonal stages into the Candidates' series , Miles eventually lost the race to become the first British Candidate when Short did so in
