  Ron: A game between two grandmasters that involves a genuine gambit
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Good game. What's this gambit called? 23.Bg8! is a hard move to see..
Sep-11-06  aw1988: Hmm, don't think it's any gambit in particular with a name, likely just a move of whimsy.

Zvjaginsev seems to come up with a lot of these, he's a very interesting player.

  Ron: I don't think that the moves which lead to the gambit in this game: 6. ... dxe4 7. Qe2 exf3 has a particualr name. The idea is similiar, it seems to me, to the Blackmar-Diemer gambit. The Blackmar-Diemer gambit can arise in the Caro-Kann in my honest opinion.
Sep-11-06  aw1988: Well, it can. Say 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. f3 dxe4 4. Nc3

  technical draw: Ok, we'll call this gambit the "Vadim-Zvjaginev-Alekseevich-Khritonov" gambit" for short.

  tamar: This is very similar to the "Winkelmann Gambit" out of the French Defense, as noted by Chess Today.

1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 a3 Bxc3+ 5 bxc3 dxe4 6 f3

Now 6...c6 7 Qe2 would transpose into this game, with ...c6 looking like a wasted move.

Dec-06-06  Whitehat1963: Zvajinsev is quickly becoming my favorite player!
Dec-15-06  Maatalkko: <Whitehat> Yeah, I just saw your question on another page, and I agree. Z-man is da bomb. He plays like a real tactician. I will study some tactics over break and then try to guess his moves to learn how a tactician should play.
