Blackmar-Diemer Lemberger

White enjoys two good Blackmar-Diemer Gambit choices against the Lemberger after 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 e5. I cover 4.Nxe4 in Blackmar-Diemer Playbook 6 which is the traditional main line. I cover 4.Nge2 in Blackmar-Diemer Playbook 7. This line by Ernst Rasmussen became my favorite.

My knowledge and experience intersected well with my skill and energy in 1998. That's when I hit my peak blitz chess rating of 2492. On my way up I drew the computer KillerGrob in a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Lemberger in the 4.Nge2 exd4 line.
