Here's a neat little gambit I came up with in the Dutch. I'm doubtful this will ever work in a real game, but it's still pretty cool, and maybe a possibility for greedy blitz players:
A good one if they are not aware of the weakness, but a Dutchie will likely play something like ...Nf6 instead of taking that last pawn. Or, they may play f2+ to change the position a bit.
FP, I have played the White side of this against the Dutch with the early f3. It creates a nagging pressure against the kingside. But not the early Bd3 though.
The Bd3 is just for an early mate, I didn't intend this to be used as a gambit in a real game.
