Mar-08-03  Rookpawn: During the opening, Bird employed a "Hedgehog" formation, a system in which none of Black's pieces cross his second rank.

  Knight13: 17...Ka6?? is just too unnatural.
Dec-29-08  YoungEd: Not one of Bird's happier games. I agree that h5 was a weak move for Black. Come to think of it, I agree with Steinitz about everything!
