Sep-23-04  Knight13: This happend to me one time when I were playing against Josh Age Seven(Rated 1375 in Chessmaster900> before. Hard to avoid these moves.

I may be biased toward the bias-lined checks,but they are quite elegant.

Nov-27-05  Chopin: I don't understand why do people play the Bird's opening without studying it. There are so many traps that White can fall for.
Dec-20-05  apoorv: very true, that's why i never tried it before (but i play king's gambit where black has to be wary of opening traps)

  ChessCoachClark: An interesting example of a Boden's Mate where the Queen takes the place of the attacking Bishop.
