Bird's Opening Again

  • #1

    Bird's Opening isn't seen much in high-level play. I guess there's all kinds of stuff wrong with it for grandmasters. But for garden-variety woodpushers it's perfectly fine, and can be a lot of fun. After 1...d5, 2.Nf3 is the most common reply, but 2.c4 is an enterprising alternative. See Caprano Janosich vs Anelli G. Here's one of my tries:

  • #2

    Black should play better. Instead of 3. dxe3 should play c5. So something like this.

  • #3

    I knew their was a reason why i did not revisit this opening. I took it out my book. Will not play it even against a 800 rated player.

  • #4

    White should play better too.

  • #5
