Interesting! What do you think about 5.Bf4 to prevent ...e5?
At first glance it seems like a good way to maintain chances of an attacking/unclear game.

Simple answer to BDG

For those not inclined to try and refute the gambit there appears to be a decent way to defuse it.

After 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 Nbd7!?, is an annoying move for the BDG specialist trying to create an attacking or at least unclear game.  For the most part Black just has to remember to play ...e5 and if Qxd8 then to play ...c6 to make way for the King.  There's still some play I suppose but it looks completely equal to me.  I'm interested to see if anyone else has thoughts on this line.
