Wall with BDG: The Critical Ryder Defence

In the final selection of the 129 BDG games that Bill Wall sent me, we have an example of Black playing the critical Ryder line - the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Ryder 6.Be3 Qg4. This is a difficult line for White to handle, and Black wins this game. The moves 6...Qg4 and 7...e5 are considered to be Black's best. This line is one reason most BDGers prefer 5.Nxf3. Let these games by Bill Wall be instructive. Black rarely finds the critical lines after 5.Qxf3 and often gets into deep trouble.

THANK YOU BILL WALL FOR 129 GAMES OF ENTERTAINMENT !!

Blackmar-Diemer Avoided Not Completely

Last night I played a BDG Avoided game that almost transposed back into a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Bogoljubow 6.Bf4 variation. However Black chose a different move order and we stayed in original territory. My opponent stubbornly insisted on a certain set-up where he sacrificed the e-pawn to open the f-file. Wait a minute. That is what I often do!?

When Black played the losing move 7...e5?, he had only one piece developed and I had all four minor pieces near the center. We were playing fast. Two general principles proved to be true: 1. Much slower development and 2. Opening the center while you king is still there are recipes for disaster, or at least for losing chess games convincingly.

Blackmar-Diemer vs Nimzo-Indian

There is a line in the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Nimzo-Indian Defence variation that spells complete and immediate disaster for Black. What do you do when you are up two queens by move 16? Stay out of trouble and look for checkmate. Here are good rules of thumb:

1. Keep your king very safe.
2. Play fast enough not to lose on time.
3. Do not accidentally lose any of your biggest pieces.
4. Eliminate any way your opponent could threaten you.
5. Look for opportunities to force checkmate.

Bill Wall with BDG: Hyginus Taguinod

In the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Ryder 5.Qxf3 Nc6 game Bill Wall vs Hyginus Taguinod, Black makes a tactical error that costs a knight.

Bxh6! Sacrifice Checkmate Doctorr2

The Bxh6 sacrifice in the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Euwe variation is as comfortable as wearing an old hat. It's reliable, it does not take much thought, and it feels good every time. Once the opponent recaptures ...gxh6, Black is usually checkmated by force. If he does not recapture, White has the gambit pawn back and Black is missing the h-pawn in front of the castled king. Here is a little blitz game I played this past weekend. My opponent "Doctorr2" was rated about 1800.

Sawyer-Doctorr2, ICC 3 0 Internet Chess Club, 25.11.2012 begins 1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.e4 dxe4 4.f3 exf3 5.Nxf3 e6 6.Bg5 Be7 7.Bd3 0-0 8.0-0 h6 9.Bf4 Nbd7 10.Qd2 c6 11.Bxh6 gxh6 12.Qxh6 Re8 [If 12...c5 13.Ne5 Nxe5 14.dxe5 Qd4+ 15.Kh1 Qxe5 16.Rxf6 Qxf6 17.Qh7#] 13.Ng5 Ng4 14.Qh7+ Kf8 15.Rxf7# Black checkmated 1-0

Bill Wall with BDG: Samuel

I am not sure who the "Samuel" below is. Maybe he is named for Samuel of the Bible or Uncle Sam. In chess history there was Sam Lloyd and Sammy Reshevsky. Maybe it is just Sam I Am today a chessplayer. In the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Ryder 5.Qxf3 game Bill Wall vs "Samuel", Black leaves the queenside undefended and falls for a tactic that nets White at least a rook.

Wall-Samuel, www.chess.com .24), 2010 begins 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Qxf3 Bg4 6.Qxb7 Nbd7 7.Nb5 Nd5? [7...Rc8 8.Bf4 e5 9.dxe5 Nc5 10.Qc6++/-] 8.Qxd5 e6? 9.Qxa8 Qxa8 10.Nxc7+ 1-0
