Jan-13-05  drukenknight: I accidentally stumbled across this opening on my own; when I did not even pay attention to the other side of the board when I played 3 Nf3. Anyhow Macleod had done his homowork on this Ponziani meets whatever...d5 and won 2 and lost 2 at this tournament. But he should have won 3 of 4 he was beating no less than Bird, but then completely lost control on move 15.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: 29.Re2 is the worst possible move on the board. Did white mean to move his queen to e2, but instead moved the rook by mistake?
May-02-05  Knight13: I can't believe Bird can win a game like this. A good player blundered too much.
