Feb-24-08  Knight13: Can't believe being two pawns ahead Bird stillcan't win this, and misses the obvious 28...Bxb3.

<Qb3 is rarely good in this opening.> He should've explained. I think it's ok for white, in my opinion.

Aug-13-10  Professor Chaos: <Qb3 is rarely good in this opening.>

I don't know if it's a bad move the majority of the time, but in this game 10. Qb3 locks white's queen out of any important duty for the majority of the middle game. And then, white tries an inadequte kingside attack with his queen stuck on the queenside not doing anything constructive.
