    After 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.f3 black should play 3...e5! with better play

    After 1. d4 d5 2. e4 White normally starts crying if Black plays 2. ... e6.

    I would say so.
    White can play 3.Nc3 (instead of 3.f3), which is better, but anyway after 3....e5! or even 3...Nf6 black haven`t enough compensation for equality.

    The Blackmar- diemer gambit. It probably borders on being unsound since GMs rarely play it, but it has good surprise value and cunning tactics.

    I wound up crying in my first encounter against it.
    Game 2473127

    Then I found a defense to make me smile, converting the blackmar into the Hubsch gambit.
    Game 2690445

    aren't you supposed to do this to the other side of the board with:
    1. e4 e5
    2. d4 exd4
    3. c3 dxc3
    4. Bc4 cxb2
    5. Bxb2
    that's how i thought it was supposed to go...
    of course there is no way on earth that black can stand a chance holding on to both pawns in this line...
    it's just impossible...

    I think Wormwood uses it quite a bit - I much prefer the KG.

    I meant that after 3...e5 and 3...Nf6 its white who haven`t enough compensation for the pawn.
