I cover the ...Bg4 and ...Bf5 lines in my 1997 article. Ask MnB or SWJediKnight to send you a copy of the file I forwarded them.

After 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.a3, Black can play a good Blackmar-Diemer with 3...de4 4.Nc3 e5! and ...c6 is more useful than a3.


I wouldn't award 4...e5 an exclam.  I would prefer 4...Nf6, trusting that I could find a BDG variation not demanding the presence of my KB on b4.  For instance 5.f3 exf3 8.Nxf3 Bg4 or Bf5, eh?

8...f6 is an error, exchanging White's weak e5-pawn for no reason.

8...Ne7 9.Ne3 Ng6 10.Nc4 Nb6 is better, when the position is equal.

You mean the Lemberger Counter-Gambit, right? Here this leads only to White advantage after 5 de5 Qxd1 6 Nxd1 Nd7 7 f4 ef3 8 Nxf3 f6 9 ef6 Ngf6 10 Nc3 Nc5 11 Bf4 Nce4 12 Nxe4 Nxe4 13 Bd3 Bd6 14 Bxd6 Nxd6 15 000 Be6 +/-

Precisely my point. It confuses my opponents! How do you think I beat a number of masters with it?

Thanks for that Lev- I got the email too.  I see a lot of evidence there to suggest that it has plenty of practical value, but objectively speaking I doubt that the move a2-a3 achieves a lot in the main lines of the Ziegler.

I agree about 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.a3- that would confuse a lot of opponents esp. in blitz!

I sent you the file. See if you got it.


Succeeded! Thanks a lot. It looks good - I mean, the structure etcetera. Not for a second I believe it's correct. But I can not rule out the possibility that I am biased either. Anyhow, 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.a3 managed to bring a smile upon my face. The look upon the face of an opponent is one good reason to play this.
  

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.

My understanding is that he had it written in an illustrated games format, but then the publisher instructed him to rewrite the book under a variation tree format.

You don't get the point. I have no means to pay him (the transfer is the problem). And talking about lazy: you are the one who hasn't send me a copy for two years or so. As usual you blame others for what you are self guilty of.

For your information: Ametanoitos has send me an email plus attachment just three weeks ago. Nobody in the whole wide world has problems in this department, except you. Remarkable, don't you think?

Geez, I could write a much better book about the BDG in that time. Faster, too!

About BDG #79: Don't be lazy, just do some searching on the Internet! Tom Purser, the Editor-in-Chief, is still alive. Reach out to him.
