In 1976, Anthony John Miles became the first chess player born in Britain to achieve the status of Grandmaster.
Born in the Birmingham suburb of Edgbaston, Miles inspired a generation of British chess players when he beat Karpov in 1980, replying to Karpov’s opening gambit with an unknown move which he later jokingly called his “Birmingham defence”.
Miles died at the age of 46 in 2001 but left behind a legacy of British success on the international stage to inspire subsequent homegrown players.
