Years ago I wrote about the Tartakower variation on the website. That website is no longer active and the below analysis is from that old effort, but I will update analysis as I play in new relevant games.

Note that Tartakower himself played the King's Gambit move order: 1 e4 e5 2 f4 Bc5 3 Nf3 d6 4 fxe5 dxe5 5 c3 etc. It was games of GM Henrik Danielsen that got me explore this variation via the Bird Opening move order.

I will slow down now and start posting on a weekly basis! Good Chess! Keith
