Blackburne Hartlaub Variation of the Englund Gambit


I am really enjoying this variation of the Englund Gambit as it takes away all the feeling of playing a Queen pawn game if White accepts both pawns offered to him . I would love to play this sometime in a tournament game.

At playchess I have played this three or four times where my d6 bishop checks on h2 and then a rook takes the queen. Some fun themes in this line.

I liked the game in this link. I have lightly annotated it.

Bdk thanks again for introducing me to the BH Gambit.

    In the past everybody did know that I had extreme problems with 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 as black. When I was fighting for the B-poule championship I knew my opponent had prepared that for weeks. So I took him off-guard with the Blackburne Hartlaub gambit and won the championship. Sweet memories!

    Tempo, I would love to see that game if you have it in PGN format!

    I'm afraid it will take me too long to find it. Sorry.
