DDG video

While ecogoogling the other day, I found a funny YouTube video that presents a DDG trick for bullet (1 + 1 minute) games. The DDG game starts at 7:35.

ecogoogling googling chess openings, which are organized by ECO (Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings) codes; the term is derived from egogoogling

The trick that wins a piece goes as follows:

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.c4

"I am playing my Duhm gambit again and again against this French Defence", says the guy on the video.

3...dxe4 4.Nc3 Nf6 5.d5?!

"Only players about 2200 fall for this, and beneath, of course; it happens very often", he continues.

I briefly mentioned this trick move in the DDG News in 2003.

5...exd5 6.cxd5 Bb4??

6...c6! -/+ busts the trick, but is hard to find in a bullet game.

7.Qa4+ Nc6 8.bxc6 +-
