Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-04  InspiredByMorphy: A different kind of game with 6.Qh4 Bird wins this game by dominating the queenside, paying attention to the kingside when it was necessary, and then dominating the queen side again.
Aug-12-04  Shah Mat: wow what a weird game.
Aug-12-04  fred lennox: <InspiredByMorphy> Describes a Bird trait very well. He often thinks and attacks obliquely, like a crab (can't think of a better analogy) as opposed to a ram. The short victory against Steinitz is a case in point where he misses a direct mate in three and instead attacks "sideways".
Apr-03-08  Knight13: Gelbfuhs went psycho on the kingside. But that was the right approach since he can't do anything on the queen side. Before going all out with 28. f6 he should've done more preperation with Rh1, Rg1 or Rf1.
Apr-25-17  sneaky pete: There is nothing wrong with 28.f6 .. and nothing right with 28.Rh1/g1/f1 Bxf5

The tournament book questionmarks 33.h6 .. and recommends 33.Bf6 ..

with the possible continuation 33... Bd8 34.Bxd8 Rxd8 35.Rg5 ..

which indeed looks grim for black.
