FIDE - Clobberers (3)

1. d4 g6 2. e4 b6
     (j'adoube 2...(NB)d8-c6?? 3. d5!! )
       (Note: 3..(NB)c6-a4!? 4. Bc4 (BD)h8:b2
                5. Bb3 (BD)b2:c1+ 6. Q:c1 unclear
                5. Bb3 (NB)a4:b3!? also interesting. )
       (Note: 3. Nf3 sacking pawn for lots of development is interesting)

Postgame editorializing: I didn't see 3..(NB)c6-a4! and that was my
biggest mistake. This sort of piece-play is hard to get used to, but
you can't really handle the Clobberers unless you make it a part of
your repertoire.
