Botez gambit

It's that kind of thing that made me start opening with e6 after d4, even though I meant to play the Dutch (and now the QGD). No move 2 nonsense!

It's "Blackmar-Diemer" not "Black-mar".

Named for Armand Blackmar and Emil Diemer.

Its universally scoffed at by masters but has a loyal following among the under 2000 folks.
