Herbrechtsmeier Wins Huebsch

“DrLethargo” is the FIDE Master Christof Herbrechtsmeier from Germany. He is my age, so he has been playing a long time. Herbrechtsmeier played the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit a lot when he was young. When writing this I remember he was mentioned in one of those German BDG books. I grabbed my copy of “Das moderne Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Band 3” by Georg Studier. Near the back as game number 100 on page 160 was his 1974 game Herbrechtsmeier vs Striebich.

For most of his career as White FM Herbrechtsmeier has played 1.e4. That is one of my favorite first moves. In blitz as DrLethargo, Herbrechtsmeier quite often goes back to the BDG. I have seen hundreds of his BDG games. Here DrLethargo wins in the main line of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Huebsch Gambit after 5.Bc4 Bf5. The Internet Chess Club notes that “HellasPutzer” was an International Master.

This line is section 5.8 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 book.
