|Nov-07-05|| ||Georgie Dubb: Strange for a correspondence game.
And who is this “F Lamb” who seems to have an opening named after him and played chess from 1862 to 1947 ?? (notably vs A Schroeder who could not have played from 1862 to 1988, but I'm wandering a bit).
|Nov-25-05|| ||elahevad: I think I can explain. Diemer was in fact very good with this gambit. It was orginally known as the Blackmar gambit, but Diemer developed it so well that his name got attatched to it as well. The reason Lamb has this defense named after him, is that this would likely have been the first time it was played. Why did Diemer miss the knight fork? Well, that was a blunder!|

|Dec-28-06|| ||Sneaky: Wow! I guess Diemer learned something about his own gambit here.|
|Dec-28-06|| ||Dick Brain: My gut tells me this game was not played, rather it was a variation in a note.|

|Jan-05-07|| ||sneaky pete: Diemer on page 141 of "Das moderne Blackmar-Diemer-Gambit" (original title "Vom ersten Zug an auf Matt!"): 6.Qd4? .. (diagram, quiz for the reader) "Here my chessfriend Lamb from Lindau, who passed away shortly afterwards, surprised me in a correspondence game in December 1947, with which point?"
The solution (with an abundance of exclamation marks) on page 181: "With 6... exf3!! (7.Qxe5? f2+!! 8.Kxf2? Ng4+!)".|
The line between brackets is only for the benefit of the student. Diemer most likely lost eventually and doesn't bother to communicate what he actually tried after 6... exf3.
