Birds Opening From Gambit 1...e5

Who's afraid of the From Gambit? There's no need to fear Bird's Opening after 1.f4 e5!? White has as good attacking chances as Black has, and White's up a pawn. In the game Mikhail Winichenko vs Oleg Doronin the players castled opposite sides and the battle was on in this From Gambit Accepted. White overwhelmed the queenside to notch the victory. See my Bird & Dutch book for a selection of my games in these openings.
