  MUG: Great notes to this game, thanks Ray.

Seems to me 8.Qe2 is the only sensible option in this position, replacing the rather unsound 8.fxe5?! and the slightly less accurate 8.Nc3.

But according to my database 8.Qe2 has not been tested very often. As well as 8...Nh6, black can also try 8...a6!? after which it is still not clear who stands better.

Ray, is this the only time you've got to play 8.Qe2 ...?

  YoungEd: Thanks too for the notes to the game. This opening is interesting. It sort of looks like an Owen's Defense reversed, but much better! I've played Bird's a fair amount, hoping to get b3 in later, but maybe I should start b3 and hope to get f4 in later!

  ray keene: i only recall playing this once-the line to watch out for is 3...d6 4 Bb5 Bd7 followed by ...a6.
