I saw some comments in another thread about an early g4.  I don't know if this qualifies as a "Flank opening" or a "d4" opening.  I imagine that nobody but Gibbins and Weidenhagen (along with the auth...

Okay, people. What do you think about 1 f4 h6! 2 Nf3 g5
3 fg5 hg5 4 Nxg5 d5, the Hobbs-Zilbermints Gambit?
It's a very original way to beat the Bird Opening.
