Blackmar-Diemer Before Kampars

Gunter Brunold reminded me that Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter played the BDG Vienna Kampars Gambit decades before Nikolajs Kampars did.

“All hail, Tim! “Born on September 4th 1903, Nikolajs Kampars would have been one hundred and thirteen (113) years old…”

Brunold cited books by Alfred Freidl, Gary Lane, Niels Jørgen Jensen, Dr. Georg F. Weber, and Rev. Tim Sawyer (two books) regarding Kampars Gambit. Gunter Brunold pointed out that it had been played thirty years earlier by the German International Master Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter in his game against Simon Rotenstein.

Our chess friend Gunter Brunold added, “I think that Kampars didn't know of the existence of this game, so the name "Kampars Gambit" is justifiable.” Yes, I agree. We have that one Richter game. Nick Kampars played 7.fxe4 (as well as 7.Nxe4) several times and promoted it.

The line 6.g5 is section 4.2 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 book.
