UNSOUND TACTIC DROPS A PIECE   

Key Points:   

1) Bird had the edge up through the middle game. 

2) A risky gambit for control lost a piece 

3) Leaving the defense of the 2nd rank allowed Horwitz to waltz in. 

4) Nice queen sacrifice tactic by Horwitz to remove the defender of the advancing passed pawn.
