Oct-29-04  DanielBryant: He must have been REALLY duhm.
Oct-29-04  poktirity: At least duhmer than D Duhm :)
Oct-29-04  sneaky pete: Don't underestimate Andreas Duhm, he's the inventor of the Duhm Gambit: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.e4 .. (A.Duhm vs J.Martin, corrr 1908). Nearly half a century later, Diemer (who else?) discovered that this gambit can also be applied against the boring French defence (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.c4 ..) and of course named it the Diemer Duhm Gambit. On the internet, Finnish player Jyrki Heikkinen has created a Temple of Duhm (google Diemer Duhm Heikkinen to find numerous links).

  Benzol: <whiteshark> Thanks.


Aug-01-07  sneaky pete: A recent biographical piece in Kaissiber gives Göttingen (in Germany) as his place of birth. He is the youngest of the 3 Duhm brothers. Basel, where the family settled later, is in Switzerland.

Jun-05-12  Archswindler: I played the Duhm gambit at the Hastings weekend congress a few years back, although by a french move order: 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. c4

To put it in context, I don't normally play like that but I was having a wretched tournament (2 draws and a loss up to that point, all against much lower graded opposition), and needed a win, and I've always done badly against the french. So when my opponent played 1... e6, I kind of flipped my lid and decided to play like a knife-wielding maniac, as I didn't have much to lose by that point.

I won a 25-move massacre (my opponent looked utterly confused throughout - I don't think he imagined he could get torn apart in a french like that). Further testing back at the club convinced me not to play it again.

That was a wise decision :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <brankat> A decision at least. :D

It's a pity <Archswindler> didn't let us participate in sharing the critical lines.

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: <whitesharK> It appears that the entire game was "critical" :-)

Btw, our friend <Pyke> has not been sen around here in almost 3 months.

Oct-27-12  Archswindler: For anyone who's interested, then, here is the game. It's not some Anderssen-esque gem or anything, just a one-sided hatchet job.

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. c4 Bb4+ 4. Nc3 Nf6 5. f3 dxe4 6. Qb3 Bxc3+ 7. Qxc3 exf3 8. Nxf3 c6 9. Bd3 O-O 10. O-O h6 11. Be3 Qe7 12. Qd2 Ng4 13. Bf4 f5 14. c5 Qf7 15. Bd6 Rd8 16. h3 Nf6 17. Rae1 Nfd7 18. Bc4 Re8 19. Nh4 Qh5 20. Nxf5 Kh8 21. Rxe6 Nf6 22. Rxe8+ Qxe8 23. Nxh6 Ne4 24. Qf4 Nxd6 25. cxd6 Be6 26. Re1 Qg6 27. Rxe6 1-0

So it was 27 moves rather than 25, but everything after 19. Nh4 is pretty much a mop-up. My opponent was graded 125 ECF, which I think was equivalent to around 1600 Elo back then (I haven't played a rated game in a while, but I heard they boosted everyone's grades a couple of years ago, so there's a different conversion formula now).

I'm pretty sure that my play was second rate throughout, and at any point in the first 10 moves or so, he had several options that would have left me in a worse position.
