Winning with the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit

Jul 6, 2009, 7:56 AM |

Hello everyone, here's another opening for you gambiteers.  This is known as the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, again not recommended for GM's, those who don't like to sacrifice material for position and people who prone to nose-bleeds. It starts as 1. d4 1..d5 2.e4 2..dxe 3.Nc3!? developing, this was popular during the romantic era where master's would sacrifice pawns, knights or even a rook for a "vicous" mating or positional attack.


Heres the Following:








This is a game of mine where my opponent who is astrong player might I add, fell victim to greed.  You see I don't mind students playing aggressively BUT you must make sure your king has an escape before his defenders leave his side.  As with all my  Gambit openings please do not use if you can't stand or understand the sacrifice of material for positional play.  Any comments or improvements please feel free to share.
