Armin Caro-Kann to Blackmar-Diemer

Armin PapavonFelix recently sent me a beautiful short sharp attack. White plays a winning combination in moves 14-15 to pick off the Black queen.

"Hi Tim, here's a game,I've played a few weeks ago:"

A quick glance at the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit chess game he sent shows that Black transposed from a Blackmar Gambit 2.e4 to a Caro-Kann Defence 2...c6, and then to BDG Ziegler after 5...Nf6. Normally Black answers 6.Bc4 with the active move 6...Bf5. However, many players prefer the solid defence 6...e6, which can be potentially passive and open to attack in the vein of a BDG Euwe.

Armin as White uses the handle "Bauernschubser". I do not know subtleties of German, but it might mean "pawn nudger", "pawn pusher", or more aggressively, "pawn shover". Black's handle means "World referee" from football or soccer sports. Whatever they intend by names, Black should rule that White scores the winning goal.
