The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.e4) can be a bit scary. White generally gets a strong attack in the main line. In this article, I explore a more confrontational approach. After 2...dxe4 3.Nc3, Black can play the opening blast 3...e5!? and obtain an intersting position with good winning chances.

Note: Most of the analysis is in the extensive notes, so make sure you click the Move List button to see them. Otherwise you'll just see one line.
