Bird's Opening

This was quite a spectacular encounter with the Bird's Opening. I had to really think on my feet to come up with a patient yet adequate defense. Two very good games.

Rematch with same player.

Very nice Bird's Opening play for white with solid structure and form. As black, consider the counterplay involved and look for opportunities to utilize the minor pieces in a smart fashion.
