Bird Defense – Part 2-B

Now we will focus on Kasparov’s preference and aggressive 6th move: Bc4! 1.e4 e5   2.Nf3 Nc6   3.Bb5 Nd4   4.Nxd4 exd4    5.0–0 c6    6.Bc4   Kasparov’s choice!! I will concentrate my analysis on 2 moves: A. 6..Nf6 and B.6..d5, as 6..d6 is somewhat passive, allowing White to create a strong center …
