   Nov-25-09 Kasparov vs Ivanchuk, 1995 (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: Of all the games that I've seen on this site, this one stands out. This was just monstrous - I'm glad I play the Winawer. :)
 
   Nov-11-09 T Taylor vs A J Mestel, 1978
 
OnlyBelieve: Sidenote: Taylor says in his book on the Bird opening that he's been staring at the position after move 18 for years, and even with his trusty Fritz, has no idea which side is better. Sidenote2: Although there is no clear advantage, it is generally thought that white is better ...
 
   Nov-06-09 Dutch Defense (A91) (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: Well, it's dangerous. I'm going to say that it's more tactical, but still positional.
 
   Nov-06-09 D Frank vs M Backes, 2004 (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: Oopsies! Haha, yes, I think that's basically what happened.
 
   Apr-06-09 Morphy vs Kipping, 1858 (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: *laughs about mudkips comment* The Haxo Gambit is just a fancy name for the Italian Gambit, although the move order is switched. Play the Italian Gambit. It's much cooler.
 
   Mar-31-09 Van Kessel vs Rensen, 1990 (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: Well as a Bird player myself, all I have to say is that this is why few of us choose the solemn path of the Bird. There are many traps hidden for both sides.
 
   Mar-25-09 A Brkic vs F Vallejo Pons, 2009
 
OnlyBelieve: Maybe so, but people like to make a big deal about them, and that is what I'm referring to.
 
   Mar-25-09 The World vs Hao Yin, 2000 (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: Hmmmm... I see your point. What if white played b3 after bxa3? Then Wouldn't that leave room for a white, kingside pawn march in the end? (Sorry, my endgame skills are terrible. This is just a question).
 
   Mar-23-09 E Williams vs A Henderson, 1845 (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: I've never had any luck with the Double Duck. However, I'm a 1.f4 (Bird) player, so I usually give it a shot whenever I need variety...
 
   Mar-13-09 Henrik Danielsen (replies)
 
OnlyBelieve: I heard on one of his videos that he calls the system the "Polar Bear" because he has played it so long and developed the lines so much so that he thought of it as a system now instead of just an opening. Hence, the Polar Bear SYSTEM, and not the Bird OPENING. But has it really ...
