Jul-24-05  Poisonpawns: Who named this the Frankenstein-Dracula-Variation and how did this name choice come about?
Oct-31-05  Helloween: <PoisonPaens> The opening of the day. I believe it was weaver Adams, who was a big Vienna game advocate. The name comes from the "scary" initiative Black gains for the pawn and the exchange.
Oct-09-06  BadTemper: His full name is Klaus Rhein. I just beat Rhein in a 5 min game on Playchess. What a donk. 2100 yum yum.

  sleepyirv: <Poisonpawns> It was named by Tim Harding because it's such a bloodthirsty opening, it's like Frankenstein playing Dracula- which is my favorite story behind any opening name.
