BountyHunter Wins BDG Gunderam

If the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is unsound, you should expect a 2772 rated computer to win as Black. Here ArasanX loses as Black in a five minute game resigning on move 54.

BountyHunter wins a BDG Gunderam in this high rated computer battle. The most curious moves in the opening for me were 6.Bd3 Bg4. They reached a position I have only seen a dozen times.

One of the things I liked about this ICC player chess engine is that it chose a very wide variety of openings, often avoiding well known paths. Here BountyHunter starts with the Queens Knight Attack 1.Nc3 before backing into a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit.

The BountyHunter computer used Rybka 4 in 2014. I do not know what it used in 2010. In 2007 it peaked with Internet Chess Club ratings in the 3300s. BountyHunter played over 70,000 rated games. It ceased to be active on March 8, 2014.

This Gunderam with 6.Bd3 is section 4.0 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 1.
