  tpstar: 6 ... Qg6 is an active plan in the Scotch, hindering White's development by targeting the Pe4 plus the Pg2. Often Black exchanges ... Bxd4/cxd4 and then plays for ... Nge7 & ... d5. After 7. Nd2 Black chose 7 ... Nxd4 8. cxd4 Bb4 and now 9. f3 seems forced (9. Qc2!? d5) which weakens White's Kingside, or else 9. e5 Ne7 & 10 ... Nd5 with a beautifully centralized Knight. Fine play by Bird throughout this game.

  tpstar: Curses. I knew 7. f3!? was shaky but forgot the best continuation = 7 ... Nge7 8. Nd2 Bxd4 9. cxd4 d5 or 9. Bxd4 Nxd4 10. cxd4 d5 and Black stands well.

BHTS-tpstar (FICS 2/24/06): 7. f3!? Bxd4 (7 ... Nge7) 8. cxd4 Nge7 9. Bc4? Qxg2 10. Rg1 Qxb2 11. Nd2 Nxd4 12. Rxg7? Nc2+ 13. Ke2 Qxg7 0-1.

Apr-04-08  Knight13: 17...f5!! is a very strong move. But still, me thinks White should've won this if he played correctly.
