Patrik,

The trick with my gambit line is that you have to know the analyses inside out, backwards, forwards and sideways. Because, if you fail to find a single important move for White, you can lose very easily. HOWEVER,
IF YOU KNOW THE ANALYSES, YOU WILL CRUSH YOUR OPPONENT.

  Can you privately e-mail me your game-score  against that 2200 player that you lost?

  I should mention that the Latvian Gambit, 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 f5  is just as sharp as my gambit line. In both cases you have to know the analyses. But hey, that is true about any gambit line.

  Leisebein is a good player, but he primarily plays correspondence chess. He is entitled to his opinion of course. However, I am the only man who knows the
Zilbermints Gambit theory. You should check Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Keybook, pages 229-232. Also, check Blackmar-Diemer Gambit World Magazine, #69 and #70.
These should give you a good idea about my gambit.

  I have seen Leisebein's games. When he plays my gambit as White, he gets very good results with it.
So, for him to say it is not correct, is rank hypocrisy.
If he wins  with my gambit, how dare he complain?

   I´m interested in your gambit but as far as I´m aware, Peter Leisebein thinks it is not satisfactory for white (and he is one of the biggest authority on BDG for me).  It means "not fully correct" or sound. Could you tell me your opinion? Is your 0-0 and Kh1 line completely sound? Or you are aware of some sample line where black is simply better? I´m seeking the best play for white in my corresp. games, not just OTB compensation. I lost one OTB game against some 2200 player using your gambit line, but I didn´t find the best move Qe1! somewhere around move 11 during the game, so it was my fault not the opening itself.

For some reason, the first seven moves did not come up.
They are as follows:

BLACKMAR-DIEMER GAMBIT
EUWE DEFENSE
Zilbermints Gambit


1 d4 d5 2 e4 de4 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 f3 exf3  5 Nxf3 e6 Euwe Defense  6 Bg5 Be7 7 Bd3 Nc6 Schiller's 1986 recommendation   8 00! Nxd4  9 Kh1! Zilbermints Gambit

I am not surprised at your response, TopNotch.  In fact, I rather expected you to answer something like this. After all, why take the chance of being proven wrong when you can shoot your mouth off about a so-called "refutation" ?

This reminds me of NM Eric Schiller and his championing of 7...Nc6 in the Euwe Defense  as a "refutation" of the BDG. That line goes

  To this I responded 8 00! Nxd4 9 Kh1!, the Zilbermints Gambit in the Euwe Defense.

  When I saw Schiller at the 1995 New York Open, he never took up my challenge of defending his 7...Nc6. 

  TopNotch, you remind me of him. Talk a lot, but never take up the challenge for fear of being proven wrong.

  And you are an International Master? Where is the courage?

"When more players discover the article"
Where can we find it? I am always interested in refutations of all sorts of gambits.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Thanks once again for the kind offer Zilber, but perhaps you would have noticed that I rarely play on ICC, and when I do play, it is almost always bullet just to unwind after a hard day. Grin

I stand by the variation I advocated, its a very good counter to the BDG. When more players discover the article, I suspect the popularity of this cult Gambit will decline sharply, even without my accepting your tempting challenge.

I have concluded from some of your other posts that your bizarre taste is not only limited to the BDG, you seem to champion anything once it is weird, obscure and eccentric. In this regard you remind me somewhat of Mike 'Grob' Basman and Steffen Buecker.

Who knows, perhaps we shall meet one day over the board, and you can dazzle me then with some BDG magic.

Till then, I don't think I will bow to the superiority of the BDG just yet.

Regards

CHICKENING OUT OF THE BDG

Recently I read TopNotch's analysis on a website. His claim was it 'refuted' the BDG. Naturally, I challenged him to play me on the Internet Chess Club and prove his worth. I messages him. In a few days I received a response to the effect of "Thanks, but I do not play human players anymore".

Now, TopNotch is an International Master. Why is he always chickening out of proving how good his anti-BDG analyses is in an actual game?
