Grigor Minchev After reading rec_kasj3 thread about the four-knights opening I did a bit of research on the Halloween gambit and I found this on Chessgames.com:

Has anyone heard of him before? Some of his games are very entertaining!

-> www.chessgames.com (A bit short, but a nice sacrifice)

I can't vouch for the quality of his opposition (though he did beat a young Veselin Topalov twice in the late 80's).

Weird I've actually studied and played this opening before, but I've never heard of him (at least not that I can remember). I can't believe someone would play this in a serious game. But if you can pull it off, you look like a genius. Amazing.
