Jun-23-05  suenteus po 147: This was a terrible loss for Bird, but I don't think it's doomed for him until well after the 40th move. What do the rest of you think?
Apr-01-08  Knight13: For me, dude, I think Bird's already dead. He's been a sitting duck the whole game, waiting for Winawer to finally find the perfect plan to smash his head off. And Winawer, unfortunately, did "well after the 40th move." It was just a matter of time, doc.
Oct-10-19  SymphonicKnight: 10...a6 is a waste of tempo, but reveals something of Winawer's paradigm of chess, in considering placing the QR on a7 to cover the 7th rank. Bird doesn't respond with the speed he should in order to capitalize. Winawer was not very successful against players who had a good sense for the initiative, but when given sufficient time, he showed a superior sense for structure.

Stockfish considers Bird's position superior well past move.40, but the white B is truly bad.

54.Qg3? placed the Q on the diagonal of the Bd6. Qg2 was indicated, especially to recapture the P on d5.

Bird missed 57.h5 =0.00 (Stockfish) after Winawer missed 56...Rxg6 -2.3, and after 57...Rxg6 Bird is finally lost. Engrossing game. Winawer was very accurate in finishing the game thereafter.
