  chessgames.com: We recently received this game designated as "Henry Bird vs Johannes Zukertort, Paris Masters Tournament, 1878." Does anybody know if that is credible?
Aug-05-05  sneaky pete: Not credible. Bird vs Zukertort, Paris 1878, is a Giuoco Pianissimo. Two Bishop's Gambits in Paris, both with .. d5 and .. Qh4+, both won by white.
Apr-15-12  PinnedPiece: GTM Score=22 Par=15 18 Played.

What a wonderful miniature.

Dec-22-14  PolishPentium: Would 11 Ng3 have improved the situation for Mr. Kornfeld?
Dec-23-14  Tullius: I do not think so; after 11.Ng3 fxg2# White loses his Queen.

  CheckMateEndsTheGame: Why not 13.... Qf6?
Mar-22-18  razetime: White did not want to castle and got absolutely throttled for it. An instructive miniature.

  TheTamale: <CheckMateEndsTheGame>: Unless I'm grossly mistaken, the move played (13... Bxd4+) forces the mate, so 13... Qf6 is weaker than the one played.
