Dec-30-04  Knight13: 3... f5 leads to 4. exf5 Bxg2 5. Qh5+ g6 6. fxg6 Bg7 (6... Nf6 7. gxh7+ Nxh5 8. Bg6#) 7. gxh7+ Kf8 8. hxg8=Q Kxg8, 9. Bxh1.

White is threating 26. a3# and Black cannot stop it. Black resigned.

Oct-03-08  YoungEd: I think that the star move here is 14. f4. It opens up many lines of attack for white. Fitting that f4 should win for Bird!
