I can't help but wonder if that's what the pallbearers said the day of his funeral. 😊

Hi all

I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: Earl of Norfolk

Game quotation:

A Bird in the Hand.

Game introduction:

Blackcrowman and I have an ongoing dispute over the validity of Bird's Opening. After losing badly to him the last time we played, I somewhat redeem myself in this game, albeit just barely.

Game conclusions:

I feel I dodged a bullet in this game. I haven't yet found a good defence to Bird's Opening.
