Huebsch Gambit Leningrad Cowboy

Andre Fleischmann writes the following in part 4:

Hello Mr. Sawyer,
Every day i have a look on your wonderful website about the Blackmar Diemer. I send a few interesting games. Two are hübsch gambits against strong players. Greetings from Germany and a big Fan of our Gambit

The Huebsch Gambit is a logical 1.d4 Nf6 defense to avoid the BDG. White will not be denied open lines for attack and boldly continues with 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4!? which would transpose to the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit after 3...dxe4 4.f3.

Instead Black takes first with 3...Nxe4 and after 4.Nxe4 dxe4 White usually develops a bishop with 5.Bc4 (aiming at f7), 5.Bf4 (preventing ...e5) or 5.Be3 (protecting d4). Often White castles queenside, depending on Black's set-up. "Leningradcowboy" brings his bishop to 5...Bf5 presenting a target for Andre's attack.

Ichsehnix (2092) - Leningradcowboy (2324), Großer Spielsaal Großer Spielsaal, 07.06.2015 begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4 5.Be3 Bf5 6.g4 Bg6 7.Ne2 h5 8.Nf4 Bh7 9.Bc4!? [9.Nxh5= regaining the pawn is obviously good.; 9.d5 hxg4 10.Qxg4= is more active.] 9...e6 10.Nxh5 Nd7 11.a4 [11.Qe2= with intent to castle queenside soon.] 11...Nf6 [11...Nb6=] 12.g5 Nxh5? [Black does better with 12...Nd5=/+ ] 13.Qxh5 Bb4+ 14.c3 Bd6 15.g6 fxg6 16.Qg4 Qf6 17.Bxe6 g5 18.Bd7+ [Or 18.Bxg5!+-] 18...Ke7 19.Bxg5 Leningradcowboy abbandona 1-0
