Dominated by pawns. You could already tell who might win on move 12!

Nov-17-08  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Besides, the latter white's pawn-munching was not really a success story.
Jan-17-09  just a kid: Excellent use of pawns.
May-17-10  YoungEd: I don't understand a couple of White's moves. 7. e5 just makes the pawn weak, and 17. g3 thwarts his own apparently intended rook lift. Odd game by Bird.

  Domdaniel: Elevators go up and down, don't they? Accordingly White plays Re3, then Re1, then Re3, etc.

Lifting and antilifting. Or Yoyoing, with Rook oscillating between apocheir and pericheir.

Oct-18-16  Aunt Jemima: I love old chess but this was a terrible game. I think if I could go back to the 1800's I might actually make a name for myself!
