Mellado Trivino Plays Huebsch

Blackmar-Diemer players often reach their 1.d4 d5 gambit after 1.d4 Nf6. International Master Juan Mellado Triviño did so against Vicenc Esplugas Esteve. The move order for that game was 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.f3 (the official BDG starting position).

A few months earlier Mellado Trivino was sidetracked from the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit by the Huebsch Gambit. Cuartas Medina played 3…Nxe4 instead of 3…dxe4 as above. FIDE Master Jorge Humberto Cuartas Medina from Colombia was born in 1984. Cuartas Medina earned his title in 2008.

The Huebsch Gambit after 3…Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4 leaves White with a choice. White bishop should he develop? Juan Mellado Trivino chose the popular move 5.Bc4. Other common option analyzed by Christoph Scheerer and by myself are 5.Bf4 (to cover e5) or 5.Be3 (to protect d4). Black chose 5.Bc4 e6. This leads to equal chances. White got into a little trouble with his own move 17.dxc5?! IM Mellado Trivino managed to escape.

This Huebsch is section 5.7 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 book.
