Could you perhaps give the moves of Bilinger - Gruenfeld?

6. a3 Nd7 7. Nf3 Nb6 8. Nxd4 Nxc4 9. Qxc4 Qc5 (Pachman [1993] gave it as equal here) 10. Nd2 Qxc4 11. Nxc4 Nf6 (equal according to Taimanov in ECO [1976]).

Not exactly new; I see it appeared in ECO (going back to the first edition in the 1970s) and Pachman's Das Damengambit.  One of the cited games is Bilinger-Grünfeld, 1941.

Could you perhaps give the moves of Bilinger - Gruenfeld? I looked in Pachman (1969) Queen's Gambit and there he does not give 6.a3, just 6.Nf3 Qb4+ 7.Bd2 Qxb3 8.axb3 dxe3 9.Bxe3 Bb4+ 10.Nc3 Nc6 11.O-O "and white has a lead in development for his sacrificed pawn" Kirillov - Rutman, 1963.

I looked in my databases for Bilenger, Bilinger, Billenger, Billinger. The only player found was Werner Billinger, a correspondence player who first appears in 2015.

I don't think white will get anywhere with this. What kind of move is 6.a3 for a gambit player?

1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e3 e5 4.Bxc4 exd4 5.Qb3 Qe7 6.a3 Nc6 7.Nf3 Bd7! idea ...Na5 or ...O-O-O, with the justification that 8.Qxb7?! Rb8 9.Qxc7? Rc8 is winning for black.

The Billenger's Gambit

I just found out about a new gambit line in the QGA and it's so new that none of my chess books mention it called the Billenger's Gambit. I haven't seen the Chesspublishing site post any theoretical articles about this gambit line so I'd thought I'd light some fires and get the ball rolling. The line goes...

1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e3 e5 4.Bxc4 exd4 5. Qb3!? Qe7 6. a3

Now the one who posted a YouTube video on the Billenger's Gambit is Jonathan Schrantz. He has a Lichess handle of Zilco and is known for bringing to light dangerous gambit lines that not many people are aware of. And the Billenger's Gambit is definitely new for me as I've never heard of it until now. Any thoughts on this new gambit line?
