Mad DDG Attack

The Diemer-Duhm Gambit combines the French Defence 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 (3. c4!) and the Queen's Gambit Declined 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 (3. e4!).

There are very few DDGers. The main reasons are probably:

  1. The lack of theory scares some people.
  2. The most potential DDGers already play the BDG, but they usually play the Alapin-Diemer Gambit (3. Be3) against the French Defence; c4 looks odd because it is not played in the BDG either.
  3. After all, only a handful of players have even heard of the DDG.
Here are two games of mine against Rebel Decade. Try the DDG, your opponent will not like it!
