Jan-23-07  Rubenus: Does anyone know if this gambit is sound?
Jan-23-07  kackhander: in the chessgames archive there are only 10 games for 5.Bd3. 7 wins for white, 1 for black, 2 draws. though i think that's far too few games to offer a meaningful answer. to me it doesn't *feel* sound, but then again i suck.
Sep-02-07  Dr. Siggy: gambit 5. Bd3!?, firstly recommended by Tarrasch in his great classic "The Game of Chess", was played a few times by none other than Alekhine. It is stronger against 4... Nf6, but it seems playable against 4... Bf5: anyway, if Black accepts the offer, White gets three tempi for the pawn. Here's the most impressive example I know of this gambit:

Richter vs Kieninger, Krakow/Krynica/Warsaw 1940: - 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Bf5 5. Bd3!? Qxd4 (safer is 5... Bxe4) 6. Nf3 Qd8 7. Qe2 Nf6 (simpler is 7... Bxe4 8. Bxe4 Nf6 9. Bd3 e6) 8. O-O Bxe4 9. Bxe4 Nbd7 10. Bg5 Nxe4 11. Qxe4 Nc5 12. Qe2 Ne6 13. Rfd1 (or 13. Rad1) Qc7 14. Bh4 g6 15. Bg3 Qc8 16. Be5 Bg7 17. Bxg7 Nxg7 18. Rd3 Ne6 19. Qe3 Qc7 20. Ne5 Rd8 21. Rxd8+ Nxd8?! (better was 21... Qxd8 22. Qxa7 Qd4 23. Qb8+ Nd8=) 22. Rd1 a6? (or 22... O-O 23. Nd7 Re8 24. Nf6+!) 23. Rd7 Qxd7? (although 23... Qc8 24. Qc5 O-O 25. Qxe7 was ) 24. Nxd7. 1-0.

  FSR: It's interesting, but I don't think it's sound. On the other hand, in practice Black seems to play like an idiot and fall into mate on d8.
