The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Zeller 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Bf5 is rare. The standard move is 4.f3. Some BDGers prefer 4.g4 Bg6. In Blackmar-Diemer Theory 4, I analyzed 5.Nge2, 5.Bg2, and 5.Be3 leading to equal chances. Richard Torning (AussieKiller) plays 5.Qe2 which appears once in my database. I quote his comments edited for space:
"Greetings Tim, Thank you for your Blackmar enthusiasm! I purchased Vols 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the Blackmar Gambit. The line I usually play does not appear to be mentioned in your books? Please correct me if I am wrong. Would I be so bold as to suggest that this variation be referred to as the Torning line if it is not already taken?"
"I love gambits and I coach children using miniature games. I also encourage the use of gambits in their opening repertoires. I am the current editor of the New South Wales Junior Chess Magazine. I enjoy assisting in the development of other chess coaches / administrators (emphasizing process goals as opposed to outcome goals). I am also an arbiter and chess administrator for the NSWJCL. Kindest regards, Richard Torning"
