Bird Defense


What is included? - 60 minutes of video material; - PGN Chess Base files format with the commented game; Bird's Opening - Opening from the perspective of white pieces. Bird's Opening (or the Dutch Attack) is a chess opening characterized by the move: 1.e4; Bird's is a standard flank opening. White's strategic ideas involve control of the e5-square, offering good attacking potential at the expense of slightly weakening his kingside. Black may challenge White's plan to control e5 immediately by leaving From's Gambit (1... e5); however, the From's Gambit is notoriously double-edged and should only be played after significant study. The Encyclopedia of Chess Openings assigns two codes for Bird’s Opening: A02 (1.4) and A03 (1.4 d5). - 1.f4, d5, 2.Nf3, g6, 3.E3, Bg7, 4.Be2, c5, 5.0-0; - 1.f4, d5, 2.Nf3, c5, 3.E3, Nc6, 4.Bb5; From Gambit: - 1.f4, e5, 2.Fe5, d6, 3.Ed6, Bd6, 4.Nf3; - 1.f4, e5, 2.Fe5, d6, 3.Nf3, de5, 4.E4, Nc6, 5.Bb5;
