  Knight13: 6... Nh6 is not a good way to defend it. 6... Qe7 is the best way.

This is the last game recorded on Henry Bird, and last game winning.

  Knight13: <Knight13> 6...Qe7 loses to Nxf7. 6...Nh6 is the only way.

But then, this is the King's Gambit! Black's king was wide open.

Mar-23-12  YoungEd: It looks as though Black's first mistake was actually 5...h5. The normal move is 5...h6. Surprisingly, the Opening Explorer shows White as having an edge in just about every line of this variation.
Sep-12-16  Marcelo Bruno: Even at his last game Bird plays his role properly.
