Blackmar-Diemer Dries Fiorito

Joaquin Fiorito wins with an opening that could be called a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Avoided. My BDG move order is 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 c5, called the Dries Variation. In this game, White was never in trouble and outplayed his opponent to win quickly.

Fiorito (2348) – Wang (1815), Titled Tuesday, 14.03.2023 begins 1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 c5 3.e4 dxe4 4.Bf4 [The most common continuation is 4.d5 reaching an Albin-Counter Gambit reversed with an extra move. Otherwise, the sound idea is to continue development by; 4.Nge2 with equal chances.] 4...Nf6 [A critical line is 4...cxd4 5.Nb5 Na6 After White takes the pawn on d4, Black has an extra doubled e-pawn for White's c-pawn.] 5.dxc5 Qxd1+ [Better is 5...Nbd7=] 6.Rxd1 e6 7.Nb5 Na6 8.b4 Bd7 9.a3 Nd5 10.Bd6 Be7 11.c4 Bxb5 12.cxb5
12...Nc3 [This loses. Better is 12...Nac7] 13.bxa6 Nxd1 14.axb7 [The rook has no safe square. If 14...Rd8 15.Bb5+ Kf8 16.Bc7. White will win a rook and piece or get a new queen. Black resigns] 1–0
