Blackmar-Diemer Gambit 5...Bg4

Nicolas Normand demonstrates a good way to crush Black with the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit when his opponent makes an early mistake. The Ryder Gambit move 5.Qxf3 in blitz tempts Black to play 5...Bg4. Black momentarily forgets that b7 is unprotected. After 6.Qxb7, the squares a8 and c7 become additional targets. Normand wins quickly.
