Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-06  Bobsterman3000: No relation, I guess...
Jan-10-06  notyetagm: Clyde is Hikaru's brother.
Jan-10-06  iron maiden: I don't think Hikaru and Clyde are brothers. You may be thinking of Asuka Nakamura.
May-26-06  midknightblue: LOL, everyone keeps claiming Clyde is related to Hikaru as either father or brother. These guys are totally unrelated. Clyde is a player from my area (Hawaii). He writes a column for where he writes about his favorite topic, very unusual gambit lines. He has been the Hawaii State Champion or Co-champion in the past, but has not been active in the tournament scene for a few years. He goes by the nickname "the evil one." Here is a link to his column
Nov-24-08  YoungEd: This is an interesting game! I've never seen this gambit before, but it looks as though if Black takes the g4 pawn with his knight, the knight gets chased around to a bad square after e4 (and maybe e5). I don't understand why black played 13. ...c4; that looked to deaden things for me. Maybe someone else can explain. Nice midgame combo to put white up a couple of pawns, but then he played a bit passively and lost his advantage. Fun game, though!
Oct-30-09  Katu: I think that the right way to face this gambit is 4. ... Nxg4 . e4 d6. as in the Gibbing-Weidenhagen (1. d4 Nf6 2. g4 Nxg4 3. e4 d6)
May-27-11  Cibator: Not the first known example of the Mutkin. For my comments on that, refer to the profile for Kevin J Wicker.
