Jun-30-13  hudapri: First occurrence of the Bird.
Jun-30-13  thomastonk: <hudrapi: First occurrence of the Bird.> No, the f4/d4 setup Saint-Amant played here has at least these predecessors: La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834 and La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834. And earlier true Bird's are known, but not here.
Oct-09-16  Aunt Jemima: 7...Nd5 is so pointless. Black can just castle and get on with it. St Amant punishes Walker with fine play throughout the game and Black never really seems to have the opportunity for a nice game.
