Kevin Sheldrick sent a wonderful Huebsch Gambit. His opponent in the Checkmate Open was Goran Srdic. The opening was a BDG Huebsch Gambit with 5.Bc4 Qd6. There were no 5...Qd6 games in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 book. I plan to cover that 5.Qd6 line in my Blackmar-Diemer Theory 4 book due out by the end of 2016.
This variation is 5.7 in my BDGD classification. That is chapter 5 and section 7 in the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Declined. That 5.7 covers the BDG Huebsch Gambit after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4 5.Bc4 without the more popular fifth move choices 5...Bf5 (section 5.8) or 5...Nc6 (section 5.9). Now on to the game. Kevin Sheldrick wrote:
“There is a movie doing the rounds at the moment in the local cinemas here in Australia called "The BFG", based on a book by Roald Dahl. As a pseudo homage to the topical movie title, I played a BDG in the local tournament today.
“My taller opponent was, indeed, a "big friendly giant", and was very gracious after the game. Usually he does not play in such a pawn-grabbing fashion as he did in this game, but he was in territory he was not that familiar with in the opening as he would have been if I had played a more conventional opening like the Queen's Gambit.
“I liked my development advantage after the first ten moves :).
Yes, that movie was playing in the United States as the same time. Thanks for sharing your game. That was a beautiful finish!
