  zydeco: An unusual game, with opposite-side castling, where both players are attacking on the same side of the board where their king is.

Bronstein's note to white's move 26: 'the onslaught white now sets in motion is not so much aggressive as prophylactic in nature. Before breaking on the queenside, white wants to secure the king's wing.'

To black's move 42: 'unexpectedly wrecking white's maneuvering game.'
