  Cemoblanca: I think "Attack With Tympani & Trumpets" wouldn't be bad, either (instead of Robert De Niro's http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077416/)!!! ;0)

  Once: Is h6/ g5 / 0-0 the chess equivalent of Russian roulette?

  Abdel Irada: <Once>: This may surprise you, but in some variations of the Borg Defense (Borg = Grob reversed), that is precisely what Black often does. However, in those positions, White isn't typically well placed to open lines as in this game. (In fact, I have enjoyed substantial success against my computer chess program with exactly such lines — although it should be noted that finding effective means of attacking without a clear target is not among silicon's greatest inherent strengths.)

On the other hand, it often proves that neither king is safe on the kingside in Grob/Borg formations, which often find both players castling long or not at all.
