Luke Cage Blackmar-Diemer

In Marvel's "Luke Cage" the character Bobby Fish mentioned in passing that he mastered the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. When my wife showed me that scene, she said it was the only time she had ever heard the words "Blackmar-Diemer Gambit" on TV or in a movie.

The setting is episode 5 in season 1 when Bobby Fish (played by Ron Cephas Jones) stands over the White pieces pondering how to begin. Bobby Fish tells Luke Cage (played by Mike Colter) that seating everyone at this funeral "is going to be the toughest move I've mastered since the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit."

Then Bobby Fish begins to make moves as he plans his seating chart. Fish commences this new opening with 1.e4 and 2.Bc4. These are the first two moves of the Bishops Opening which I used to play before I took up the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. A complex opening that requires exact knowledge to master will return an ample number of victories for those who play it often. Lev Zilbermints has mastered the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit.

This BDG Teichmann begins by transposition after 1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.Nc3 exf3 5.Nxf3 Bg4. The players continued 6.h3 Bxf3 7.Qxf3 c6. White has a choice between 8.Be3, 8.Qf2, and Lev’s preference here 8.g4. White sacrifices a second pawn to speed up the attack and slow down Black’s development. Lev Zilbermints triumphs against International Master Amrou Sobh of Egypt in this Internet Chess Club three minute game. BDG Teichmann 8.g4 Qxd4 is section 5.6 in Blackmar-Diemer Games 1 and Blackmar-Diemer Theory 3.

Zilbermints (2122) - Sobh (2061), ICC 3 0 Internet Chess Club, 12.09.2016 begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.Nc3 exf3 5.Nxf3 Bg4 6.h3 Bxf3 7.Qxf3 c6 8.g4 Qxd4 9.Be3 Qb4 10.0-0-0 e6 11.g5  [11.Rd4!?] 11...Nd5 12.Nxd5 [12.Bd4 Nd7 13.Kb1 Be7 14.Nxd5 cxd5 15.Bxg7 Rg8 16.Bc3=] 12...cxd5 [12...exd5 13.Bd2 Qd6 14.Bf4+/-] 13.Bd3 [13.c4 Bc5 14.cxd5 0-0 15.Bg2=] 13...Nc6  [13...Bc5 14.Bxc5 Qxc5=/+] 14.Rhf1 Ne5 15.Qf2 [15.Qe2 Nxd3+ 16.Rxd3 Bd6-/+] 15...Be7 16.Bd4 Bxg5+ [16...Nxd3+ 17.Rxd3 0-0-/+] 17.Kb1 Qd6?
