I just received the book Blackmar, Diemer and Gedult, by Tom Purser and Anders Tejler. It was published in 1998 by Purser's Blackmar Press in Alabama. This book has over 200 games of David Gedult, the French Diemer.

Interestingly enough, I found a previously unknown game which resembles the Zilbermints Gambit in the Euwe Defense.

Gedult - Terolle
Paris, L'Etoile 1973

1 d4 d5 2 e4 dxe4 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 f3 exf3 5 Nxf3 e6 6 Bd3 Bb4 7 Bg5 c5 8 00 Nc6 9 Kh1 Nxd4

10 Ne4 Nf5

So far this resembles the game Brizzio-Capdevila, Argentina, 1960.

11 Qe2 Bd7 12 Ne5 Qe7 13 Nxd7 Kxd7 14 Rxf5! exf5 15 Nxf6+ gxf6 16 Bb5+ Kd8 17 Rd1+  1-0.

A great attacking game by David Gedult.

Hi, still reading the forum from time to time. Recently been looking into
1. d4 d5 2. e4 dxe4 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. f3 exf3 5. Nxf3 Bg4 6. h3 Bxf3 7. Qxf3 c6 8.g4 Qxd4 9. Be3 Qd6 10. g5 Nfd7 11. Nb5! Qb4+ 12. c3 Qxb2 13. Rd1 cxb5 14. Qxb7 Qxc3+ 15. Kf2 with advantage.  Better is 10..Nd5. Also interesting attempt is 8...h6!? But this Hara Kiri is fun and certainly something what BDGer is always looking for.
and just now 1. d4 d5 2. e4 dxe4 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. f3 Bf5 5. fxe4 Nxe4 6.Qf3 Nd6 7.Bf4 e6 8.0-0-0 Be7!? is an interesting possibility, as there are some independent positions. My grandpa played it against me today in blitz game. I choosed principial 9.Bxd6 cxd6 10.Qxb7 but was not that easy. With difficult play. 9.g4 Bg6 and now 10.Qe3 Nc6!?, so better 10.h4 unclear.

The lack of good threads on the BDG lately is also caused by ArKhein and Seven Violets not contributing anymore. They delivered good stuff, from White's point of view. I am pretty sure their absence has nothing to do with mr. B though.
  

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.

There are some topics indeed. But many of them are (imo - maybe this is wrong if you love the BDG) killed by a unhealthy style of communication of a player I don't want to name - even if everybody will know who this is.

"A: The line 1. .. .. 2. .. .. 3. .. .. 4. .. .. 5. .. x is better for Black. y is not the best move.

B: I have won a 3 min. game on ICC (or against a local 3rd class player rated USCF 2000+) with 1. .. .. 2. .. .. 3. .. .. 4. .. .. 5. .. y. (No arguing with lines follows, but a complete game.)"

Some friends of the BDG are more serious, which is easy to remark. But Mr. B. doesn't allow any discussion by his style. It's sad to observe.  Embarrassed

I haven't seen any mention of the fact that the last 3 d-Pawn Special updates all covered the BDG, has nobody noticed them or are there no subscribers among the BDG community? Undecided


Having noticed this I think that most BDG fans have nothing to do with theoretical analysis. They play around for fun.


If you think that then you haven't read the forum for long which actually has too many threads on the BDG.  I've been meaning to comment on the last update but have been working a lot lately.  I've never played the BDG OTB but I find the updates interesting.  Of course I think it's healthier if one mixes BDG study with study of more standard openings.

OK, I am guilty myself, but I really think it's time to start talking chess, as in things that happen on the 64 squares.  Either that or let's close this tired old thread.

One, I sacrificed a pawn for development. Thus, it was not a clumsy loss of pawn, as you write. Second, my opponent had to spend time figuring out the correct responses. You were not there at the board, MnB, while I was. Thus, I should know better than you how flustered my opponent appeared at times during the game.

Third, your opponent was not flustered enough to reward him with any exclam for his moves.
Fourth, it indeed takes genius like yours to save a draw against a stronger opponent after that clumsy loss of a pawn.
Five, very few things are sillier than responding irony as seriously as you prefer to do. Possibly playing the BDG is (this is irony again, Lev, spelled I - R - O - N - Y, provoked by your excessive Diemeresque usage of the ! sign).

I think we should congratulate LDZ with his excellence defence after the clumsy loss of a pawn at such an early stage. Not everybody would have found those 6 strong moves to reach a draw against a stronger opponent.


But not everyone has the genius of Lev D. Zilbermints!  Grin Wink Roll Eyes

Actually, MnB, both players had played the best moves in order to reach the drawn result.

Sure. But according to the exclams you attached your opponent did not have to find particularly strong and difficult ones. You had to 6 times. So your opponent had a relatively easy day while you had to work very hard. It's admirable that you were up to that immense task. The draw was certainly a hard earned reward. The admiration can only grow when we take the opening moves into account.
