Faydi Defeats Kuzmin Blackmar-Diemer

It is fun to beat a grandmaster in a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit in blitz. I annotate the exciting contest between Jonathan Faydi vs GM Alexey Kuzmin of Russia from the Internet Chess Club. Jonathan is from the Netherlands, home of the Dutch people. Most passengers on the Malaysia Airlines plane that went down over the Ukraine where from the Netherlands; I offer my deepest condolences. Jonathan sent this game to me as I was leaving for a cruise on the Holland America ship line, plus four United airplane flights. Jonathan writes more about this game on his blog site "From Patzer to Master".

"Hello Tim, I thought you might be interested in having a look at the following game (a win against GM Alexey Kuzmin using the BDG):

The line is a BDG Euwe variation where Jonathan as "Littlewave" takes on Kuzmin "Dynamo63". This gambit makes Black burn thinking time to avoid losing quickly. The opening is played well by both sides. White gets good chances for the advantage in the middlegame. By the endgame, the grandmaster gets the better of a materially even position. However, Jonathan outplays him on the clock in a wild time scrabble. After move 32 both players had just seconds left; the clocks stood at 0:24-0:10. Black played 16 moves in his final 10 seconds, but White wins on time with 5.1 seconds left.
