From the Publisher

The charismatic Tony Miles has been much missed since his tragic and premature death in 2001. Regarded as one of England's greatest ever chess players and analysts, he was also one of the wittiest writers on the game. By sheer force of example and ebullient peronality, he inspired the 'English chess explosion' after becoming the first UK grandmaster in the mid 70s. This Fascinating collection of over a hundred games and articles, covering Tony's entire chess career, includes his most celebrated wins, a few losses, and in addition to the famous game against Karpov with the bizarre St George's opening 1 e4 a6 - a less well known victory over the then world champion from a television tournament. All the games are annotated by Tony himself - in his own inimitable style. This fitting tribute is rounded off with a review of Tony's original opening repertoire as well as personal appreciations by his Birmingham clubmates and friends Mike Fox, Malcolm Hunt and Geoff Lawton.

(Game theory, as she sometimes has to remind her students at the University of California, Irvine, isn’t really about games, b

Warcraft Mobile Game: Is Blizzard Working On A New IOS And Android Title?

Blizzard could be working on a brand new mobile game — if a recent job listing is believed to be true. Touch Arcade recently dug up said listing that made vague mention of mobile games in the job description, but it didn't mention a specific game at that time. Touch Arcade reports again that a new job description has gone live at Blizzard's Irvine location that reads largely like a mobile game position.  The new job opening looks like it's for a visual effects artist who would create visual effects for an "unannounced project for mobile." Further, the FX artist would work on creating real-time

The answer came when one of them suggested Mr. Ritter play between classes like everybody else. “It definitely made me feel old,” he said.Videogame players join virtual teams often with people they don’t kno
