In the game regarding the Bird's opening, it looks like white's 6th move leaves the book variations. However, 6.h3 does not look like the best move here.

Robin said...

In my game with Ivan, I found the move 6...Ne4 with the threat of Bh4+, which seems very strong for black. Now, why could I not have found that over the board?!

Here is an interesting game I played last night versus Ivan. When Ivan locked the center with c5 I was obliged to launch a pawn storm on the King Side.
