There is that Schiller/Watson book called The big Book of Busts or something like that. Schiller also always has advocated the Euwe Defence.

I do remember that Wahls in his book on the Scandinavion gave something against the BDG as well, but don't know anymore what exactly.

Thank you very much. Schiller wrote his book with John Watson and the combination worked well. I shall check out his analysis.

The analysis of Jeremy Silman scared me off the BDG for some time. There is a separate thread on this site dealing with the Alchemy variation.

1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe 3. Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf 5.Nxf3 c6 6.Bc4 Bf5 7.0-0 e6 8. Ng5

A totally untested idea which may not be totally sound but would be a shock move to play in blitz is 6.Qd3 I have been having great fun playing this against deep rybka 3









































wrote about the Von Hennig-Milner Barry Gambit. That makes me wonder if other authors on the Caro-Kann have written on the transposition 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.f3 or 4.Bc4/5.f3.

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.

Antidotes to the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit

Hi all, I am currently doing a lot of work on antidotes to the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit.

In the past respectable chess players treated this as being a load of old cobblers and did not write about it. These days they still think it is a heap of rubbish but take it more seriously.

These days lots of repertoire books are giving antidotes to the BDG. I unleashed the BDG in a tournament between Christmas and new year. Both games were against much higher rated opponents. One I blew clear out of the water. The other played one of the repertoire refutations and I eventually lost when I made a bad positional error in the middle game. I probably could have forced a draw by sacrificing a knight but wanted more (one of the seven deadly chess sins).

What I need is a list of books and authors and the given antidotes to the BDG.

So far I have

Gallagher – Beating the Anti King's Indians which gives a line of the Euwe Defence.

1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf 5.Nf3 e6 I have scored well with this line as black in correspondence fixed openings tournaments. However I have analyzed a line which leads to a position where white regains the pawn with a position I find difficult to evaluate. As always if black gets it wrong the wheels come off.

Cox - Dealing with d4 deviations which suggests the Lemberger.

1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe 3.Nc3 e5  I have found a line against one line Cox gives where white keeps an edge in a very unbalanced position.

My question is “What other books give antidotes to the BDG and what are they?
