Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-04  Knight13: Bird needed to watch out the a4 pawn on move 24. If made no-sense of moving Queen to d5 because of that. And he became the weak defender from a good attacker. Bird really needed to watch out on the Queen side more.

Good game.

Nov-25-04  sneaky pete: 19.d5? .. was a mistake in an already very bad position. 19... Re8 (20.dxc6+ Kc7 etc) would have been winning, as was soon discovered after the game.
Jun-16-16  devere: Bird missed 21...g5! winning for Black.
