Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-09  YoungEd: A pretty finish. If Black tries to retreat the ♕ and protect the f6 ♘, with, say, 61. ...♕f8, then 62. ♕xf6 anyway with a mate threat on h7. At the least, it seems Black must lose a ♗ at the end with 61. ...♗d7.

Interesting to see someone other than Bird play Bird's opening in a tournament where Bird himself played! Black's ♘c6-b8 maneuver looks weird, but actually doesn't seem to hurt him much. Interesting game.
