Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-06-04  jahhaj: This is the Wagenbach variation. Jon Tait is a player in my local league and Janos Wagenbach is credited round here with inventing this variation. The point of the variation (as I understand it) being that h4 makes it very hard for White to break up Black's king side pawns.

Jon Tait plays it often enough so he certainly thinks its playable or even sound. Anyone else have any opinions?

Apr-08-05  sneaky pete: <jahhaj> I can offer no opinion, due to lack of both praxis and study of this discombobulatory variation, but here's a link to additional games and analyses by the indomitable kingsgambiteer Thomas Johansson

<9.d5?> is a positionally smashup.
