Halosar Trap -- Play to End the Game

BK Academy of Chess presents:

Halosar Trap -- Blackmar-Diemer Gambit


Sometimes we find ourselfs playing for the endgame. Always counting material, with some of us even being afraid to drop just one pawn.  Then we have the stone cold positional players, clinging onto a slight avantage while missing out on huge dividend because they are affraid to take a risk.  They make it to the endgame but can't convert their small advantage so they settle for a draw.

Why is this?  It's because we're always thinking about and playing for the endgame.  Folks, most games don't even make it to the endgame.  Rev Tim Sawyer wrote in one of his Keybooks, "Stop playing for the endgame, play to end the game! Be a winner. Play the Blackmar–Diemer Gambit!"'
