Jan-12-05  sergeidave: Interesting!! The King himself playing important rolls on the killing of the enemy!! Nice game!
Jan-12-05  kostich in time: Thjis ,is, indeed, a very interesting and lively game. It is an interesting example of an active king in a simplified position creating a mating net. I can think of few similar examples. Interestingly, both Pirc and Tylor were originally trained as lawyers. Tylor (who was legally blind) was a law tutor at Oxford.
Jan-12-05  Shah Mat: great game.

i wonder just how unsound Bird's is with proper defense.

Aug-16-05  erimiro1: <>As far as I know, it's not Bird's opening (that continues 1. - d5) but an interesting variation called (I hope I spell it right) The From gambit.

Dec-19-06  think: Question: why not 27. Nxf6?
Also 29...Kxf6 g5#
Dec-19-06  JohnBoy: <think> - on 27.Nxf6 white loses to 27...Nxf6 28.Kxf6 Rxd6+ 29.any Rxd3. Plus, 27.Kh6 wins.
