1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Ne4 ?!? the starting point of the Mokele Mbembe
Black's latest move will certainly get your opponent's clock ticking.
3.f3 ?! ( see below ) Nc5 4.d4 Ne6 5.d5 Nc5 6.b4 Nca6 7.b5 Nc5
A strange position - the black horseman has moved three times to the c5 outpost, whilst white has made seven pawn moves and black 7 knight moves - a position Diemer would have certainly appreciated.
I went on to win easily after 8.Be3 as white's pawns proved to be too far advanced to be effective.
But after the game I noticed I could have improved on move 3, as 3...e6 would have been much stronger.
So once again we see that it is absolutely crucial to get a thorough opening knowledge when playing sharp lines, such as the Blackmar Diemer or the Mokele Mbembe - it will get your opponent thinking from move one !!
