BDGer Jorge Quinones vs Litos Polbete

This week I am posting several Blackmar-Diemer Gambit type games from readers of this blog. Thank you! The analysis of the games is mine. We begin with Jorge Quinones.

"Good Morning Mr. Sawyer! I have been reading most bdg pages since almost 13 years ago when I started to play chess, and yours and Mr. Purser pages are the ones that I remember the most :)    ...    Jorge QuiƱones"

The game between Jorge Victor Quinones Borda and Litos Poblete is notable for logic, accuracy and creativity. The deeper I analyzed it, the more beautiful the game became. The bishop sac 17.Bh7+! sped up the attack. The variation is the BDG Huebsch Gambit.

Quinones (1919) - Poblete (1674), ZI-2012-0-01428 Lechenicher SchachServer, 23.11.2012 begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4 5.Bf4 [This move has the advantage of preventing an immediate ...e5. The alternatives are 5.Bc4, 5.f3, 5.Be3 and 5.c3.] 5...e6 [5...Bf5 is also common.] 6.Qd2 Bd6 7.0-0-0 0-0 8.f3 exf3 9.Nxf3 Bxf4 [Swapping pieces when up a pawn is almost always a good idea. Scheerer gives a game with 9...b6 10.Bd3 where White has compensation for the pawn in a potential kingside attack.] 10.Qxf4 Qd6 11.Qh4 Nc6 12.Bd3 h6 13.a3 [13.c3!? also keep the Black knight out of b4 and protect d4.] 13...Rb8 14.Rhf1 b5 15.g4 b4 [When castling opposite sides, you want to keep attacking and spend as little time as possible defending. Here redeploying for defence with 15...Ne7 16.g5+/= still allows a strong White attack.] 16.g5 bxa3 [Black presses on with the attack. If 16...g6 17.gxh6+/-] 17.Bh7+! Kxh7 18.gxh6 axb2+ 19.Kb1 f6 [If 19...gxh6 20.Ng5+ Kg7 21.Ne4+-] 20.hxg7+ Kxg7 21.Ne5 Nxe5 22.dxe5 Qxe5 23.Rg1+ Kf7 24.Qh7+ Ke8 25.Rg7 1-0
