Zilbermints Zaps Hernando Hara-Kiri

Lev Zilbermints makes it his regular practice to defeat title players in online blitz games. Lev specializes in offbeat tricky lines that frequently win vs humans. Often Zilbermints beats several masters in a day. Sometimes he knocks off grandmasters.

Detractors may say, it's only blitz. But frankly, most chess games really are played at blitz speed. Math nerds may point out that computers calculating without emotion can find more accurate lines. True. But Lev Zilbermints gets to feel the joy of victory. How many chess masters did you beat this week?

Most of us want chess to be fun. For Zilbermints it is. He takes on Antonio Hernando, a FIDE Candidate Master from Spain. These same two players have often played this BDG Vienna (4.f3 Bf5) in the Hara-Kiri Attack (5.g4 Bg6) with 6.h4. Either side can win. Here is one in favor of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit.
