Jul-13-04  InspiredByMorphy: What a game! Debatable whether black should have won or not, but the opening is well played by Bird.
Jul-13-04  acirce: Or badly played by Paulsen. Or by both.
Jul-13-04  fred lennox: <InspredByMorphy> yes, it is a wonderful game. Bird was fond of the Exchange. He doesn't quite pull it off here. Here is a game you might enjoy where he does. J Mason vs Bird, 1882
Jul-14-04  InspiredByMorphy: <fred lennox> Thanks. That was a good game!
Apr-04-08  Knight13: <Debatable whether black should have won or not> I'd say no, black couldn't have won. White's got the game down to at least a draw.
