Dec-27-14  greed and death: 1. d4 b5! and things get crazy fast... :P

A nice win by an underappreciated player (IMO) against the reigning WC.

Dec-28-14  ughaibu: I think the f5 idea is named after someone beginning with "K" (Kucharkovsky?), but I can't immediately find confirmation. Anyway:
Dec-28-14  sneaky pete: After 1.e4 b6 2.d4 Bb7 3.Bd3 f5 is called the Matovinsky Gambit, see G den Broeder vs W Wegener, 1982

Of course Prins played a much weirder version of that line.
