Ursprünglich entworfen, um den in den Zwanziger Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts aufgekommen Ideen der schachlichen Hypermoderne etwas "Romantisches" entgegenzusetzen, allerdings bereits damals mit nur wenigen Anhängern gesegnet.

Die vorgegebene Zugfolge mit dem Bauernopfer im 4. Zug stellt eine Abspiel-Variante der Tarrasch-Verteidigung dar und wurde von dem Österreicher <Anton Schara> 1918 in Wien ausprobiert und von dem Deutschen <Heinz von Hennig> 1929 in Duisburg beim 26.DSB Kongress in die Turnierpraxis eingeführt; er gewann damit gegen J.Benzinger.

Dieses nicht uninteressante Gambit ist kaum mehr in großen Turnieren anzutreffen.

Gelernt hat von Hennig das Schachspiel als Seekadett. Er gewann mehrmals die Stadtmeisterschaft von Kiel. 1932 belegte er in Bad Ems einen geteilten zweiten Platz hinter Georg Kieninger . Im gleichen Jahr wurde er in Kiel Vierter hinter Alfred Brinckmann , Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter und Herbert Heinicke . 1935 wurde er in Bad Saarow erneut Vierter hinter Efim Bogoljubov , Herbert Heinicke und Ludwig Rellstab .
