  keypusher: <knight13> 27...Bxc1 can be answered by 28. Bxh8 or 28. Nxd6+ and White stays a pawn up. 30....Bxh2 31. Kxh2 Rh5#. Bird was a famously trappy player -- surely you know this.
Feb-22-08  Knight13: <Keypusher> Yeah, but not trappy enough to miss 31. Nxe2. That move was easy to see; either Bird gave up and tried out a cheap trick with ...Bxh2 or he really did missed Nxe2 (which would be very stupid for a master to miss a move like that).

  keypusher: <knight13> He tried many cheaper tricks that this. Especially if the alternative was a lost ending.
