Apr-01-07  fred lennox: What made Bird like the Bird and dutch opening? BAsically he shares larson's fondness for flank attacks. allowing for the f2(7) to be vacant does 3 things. First of all, since flank attacks are usually accompanied by a blockade center, the king becomes a more aggressive piece, so after 0-0 he is ready to step into action. Secondly, f2(7) makes way for the king to step out of the way for the rooks whose swinging from wing to wing is often crucial for such play. Thirdly, as in this game, it prepares for kingside attack as both rooks double on the KB file. As Larson pointed out one thing nice about flank attack is if failed one can attack on the other flank. Niether Larson or Bird liked draws. There are other features to the Bird and Dutch, i believe this is what attracted Bird to it.
