Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-05  chess man: Great game by the great player Henry Bird using the opening named after him. After 22...Ke7 23.Qg5 is checkmate so black resigns.The only way to prevent the checkmate is with 22...Qf7 but that of course loses the queen.By the way <> 22.Nd4 should be 22.Nd4+.
Apr-01-08  Knight13: <chess man: Great game by the great player Henry Bird using the opening named after him.> I disagree. Fritz sucked in this game. He makes bad moves, and Bird crushes him. Not a great game by Bird, but a terrible game by Riemann. But it is a fun game to go over!
