Zilbermints Wins BDG 16 Moves

Grandmasters see many openings, but I doubt they come across a Paleface Attack very often. That line begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.f3!? Blackmar-Diemer Gambit players employ it as a transpositional device to reach more familiar variations and openings. Here the players reach a BDG. The move 2.f3 avoids the Huebsch Gambit which could be reached after 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4. In that case 3...dxe4 4.f3 is again a BDG.

Lev Zilbermints as White wins against a grandmaster who used the handle "yozhik" on the Internet Chess Club. It is impressive for anyone to defeat a master in 16 moves. Black chose the BDG Euwe Variation after 5.Nxf3 e6 6.Bg5 h6.

This line is variation 2.3 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 1 book. White drew out the Black queen with 7.Bxf6 Qxf6. Black should have recaptured with the 7…gxf6. Zilbermints gained time with the moves 8.Bb5+ c6 9.0-0. He followed it up with the knight maneuver 10.Ne5 to 11.Nxf7 to 12.Nxh8.

Zilbermints (2089) - yozhik (2396), ICC 5 0 Internet Chess Club, 14.07.2016 begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.Nc3 exf3 5.Nxf3 e6 6.Bg5 h6 7.Bxf6!
