BDG Lemberger 3...e5 4.Nxe4

One of my longtime friends on the Internet Chess Club used the handle “ATtheGreat”. He is no longer active or using that name. We chatted more than we played. The ICC database server has several of his games spread out from 2006 to 2013.

ATtheGreat had a higher rating in slower games. His standard rating was as high as 1994 in 2012. It seemed to me that at times his blitz rating was unusually low and mine was unusually high. Partly because of that difference we rarely if ever played rated games.

ATtheGreat knew his opening variations pretty well. Either he had a lot of experience or a good memory. In this game we tested the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit in the BDG Lemberger Variation which begins 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 e5!? This variation is completely playable. Most of the time as White I chose 4.Nge2. Here we played 4.Nxe4 Qxd4 5.Bd3 f5.

The 4.Nxe4 Qxd4 line is section 2.5 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 book.

ATtheGreat (1564) - Sawyer (2408), ICC 2 12 u Internet Chess Club, 19.09.2004 begins  1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 e5 4.Nxe4 Qxd4 5.Bd3 f5 6.Nf3 [6.Nc3 Nc6 7.Nf3 Qd7 8.Qe2 e4 9.Bc4 Nf6=/+; 6.Ne2 Qb6 7.N4c3 (7.Be3 Qxb2 8.Nd2 Nc6 9.0-0 Qb4 10.Rb1 Qg4=/+) 7...Nf6 8.Bc4 Be6 9.Bxe6 Qxe6-/+; 6.Ng3 Bb4+ 7.Kf1 Qd6 8.c3 Bc5 9.Qe2 Ne7-/+] 6...Qb6 [6...Qd7! 7.Neg5 Nc6 8.Qe2 e4 9.Bc4 Be7 10.Nh4=; 6...Qd8! 7.Neg5 Nc6 8.Qe2 e4 9.Bc4 Nh6 10.0-0=; 6...Bb4+ 7.c3 Qd5 8.Qe2 fxe4 9.Bxe4 Qd6 10.cxb4+/-; 6...Qd5 7.Nc3 Bb4 8.Bd2 Qd6 9.0-0!
