Inhaltsangabe: Grandmaster Tony Miles became England's first Grandmaster, and led the way for a generation of strong English players to follow. On the board, Miles was an innovator. He tried to be original in every game. Some of his ideas appear "crazy" but on further examination prove to instead be deeply considered and profoundly original. But what made him most exceptional as a player was an extraordinary determination and will to win. This book is a collection of fifty games in which Miles' victory comes in 24 moves or less. Some of these games are gems. All are worthy to be seen. About the Author: For over six decades, International Master, Dr. Nikolay Minev has been playing, researching, and teaching chess. He was the champion of his native Bulgaria in 1953, 1965, and 1966. He represented his country in six Chess Olympiads (1954, 1956, 1958, 1960, 1962, and 1966). For nearly three decades, Minev participated in high level international tournaments, three times qualifying for the FIDE Zonals (1954, 1963, and 1967). His best international results were finishing third at Varna in 1960, second at Warsaw in 1961, tied for first at Sombor in 1966, third at Novi Sad 1972, and second at Albena in 1975, where he earned a GM norm. He was awarded the International Master title in 1960. An expert on endings and tactics, Minev was one of the principal contributors to Chess Informant's Encyclopedia of Chess Endings series. He also contributed to early editions of the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings. He served for many years as editor of the Bulgarian national chess magazine Shakhmatna Misl and was a regular columnist for Inside Chess for over ten years. He has written or co-written more than 25 books.
