I won a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit that got scary in a three minute blitz game played a year ago today. In a BDG Teichmann after 5.Nxf3 Bg4, White can develop a bishop with 6.Bf4 or 6.Bc4, but I played 6.h3 on Halloween, I pulled off a trick and got a treat. Black played 9...Bd6 which allowed White to gain time attacking the bishop with 11.Ne4. Then I started an early queenside attack to encourage Black to castle kingside where all my pieces were aimed. Playing logical moves quickly, we missed a couple moves. To keep from losing the Exchange, Black played 17...f5 and suffered a worse fate. It was short and sweet as chocolate candy from Hershey where I won once a chess tournament.
My opponent "Pawnivore" is someone that I have played once a year for three years. Before I won this BDG, I won a 1.e4 c6 Caro-Kann Defence as Black in 2012, and in 2014 I won as White with 1.Nc3 c5 Queens Knight Attack without transposing into the Sicilian Defence. I did not post the other games. I have published about 2% of my games on this blog, but if I can keep writing long enough, that will go up over time.

[While 13.Bf4 was tempting and is good, my idea was to begin action on the queenside to talk Black into castling kingside.] 13...0-0 14.Bg5?! [14.Bf4 e5=] 14...Rae8 [14...Nd5!=/+] 15.Rae1 [15.Nxf6+!
