I haven't heard such a good rendition of "The bird is the word" since Pee Wee Herman sang it in Back to the Beach. :-)

Good job catchin' that mate he missed near the end.

A good video and a good game. You played some good, strong moves mixed in there with the "blitz induced" ones. As I said over in Robo's video: a win is a win!

yah, I sorta found myself reverting to strategic principles without a guiding plan - I think the pawn push sooner would have been stronger but a win is a win

the way he used the Austrian attack and responded with Bxf7 makes me believe he was pretty familiar with the Pirc as black too -

got the flu this week - good chance this will be my main/only entry -

the bird IS the word

It's nice to look at your video next to other videos it stands out. You were energetic, clear spoken and hey - even funny. Great stuff.
