Jack Clauser Wins BDG Zeller

Jack Clauser told me about a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit game he played. The line was in the Zeller variation after 3.Nc3 Bf5. His game followed a line from the “Blackmar-Diemer Gambit” by Gary Lane. One page 117 a note cites Boyarinov - Utemov, USSR 1962. Moves are given up through move 9 dxc6! After that point, Jack and his opponent deviated from that game. They were on their own. That game is given below.

Clauser asked me, “Do you have in your database the entire game? If yes, I'd like to review the game.” Jack added, “I am guessing the game continued 9...Bxf3 10.Rxd8+ Kxd8 11.c7+ Kc8 12 cxb8 (Q+) Rxb8 13 Bxb8 Bxg2 14 Bxg2 Kxb8 15 Nf3.”

A few days later Jack wrote,
“Finished my phone chess game today. See attached photo with the score handwritten. I played a guy from South Africa. My name in the app is "JackC1586". The app gave me my name. I had no input. My opponent is "Varro.kun". A friend got me into the app. He invited me via Facebook. I asked how he found the app and he said: Google App Store for Zynga Chess or use search option in Facebook by typing "Chess With Friends". Jack”

Thanks! Jack Clauser is a longtime friend. This game is shows the value in playing what is probably the best move 6.Bf4.
