  An Englishman: Good Evening: Winawer and Bird seem to have had something of a running feud over Bird's Defense. The results should give pause to Bird fans--he lost 3-0--but the games are pretty entertaining.

Especially this one. Winawer conceives of a curious pawn sacrifice; the point is to exchange as many pieces as possible and get into a Knight vs. bad Bishop ending a pawn down. Bird defends well with ...Bh6!, but then eschews the proffered perpetual check by playing 36...Kd6?, allowing the Knight to invade decisively.

Apr-04-08  Knight13: Seriously, is 31...Rxa1? really necessary!!??

And 36...Kd6, letting White's knight in with Nb7 is dumb.
