Huebsch Gambit Torning 5.Qe2

I applaud Rick Torning for his creative Blackmar-Diemer Gambit experiments. He won a bullet game in the Huebsch Gambit with his novelty 5.Qe2. Richard Torning wrote in part:
"Huebsch Gambit - I aimed for my Torning Variation system minus the Nc3... I am not aware if this variation in the Huebsch is known? (I will write to Eric Jego and find out)."

Thanks, Rick. Your 5.Qe2 against the Huebsch was not my database and I did not find it in Eric Jego's excellent book on the Huebsch Gambit. White has six choices after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4. White should protect d4 with 5.Be3! or 5.c3! for best play. Promising are 5.Bc4!? or 5.Bf4!? Outright risky are two moves that I do not recommend for White: 5.f3?! e5! or 5.Qe2?! Qxd4! In either case, Black stands superior.
