Julio Becerra Wins Blackmar-Diemer

Grandmaster Julio Becerra won a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit in an Internet Chess Club game. Becerra has long been a universal chess openings player. The grandmaster plays the theoretically "best" lines most often. Becerra seems able to play any opening.

He excels in tactical positions. I have found his games in several opening books. My guess is that he was having fun playing chess. The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit was his choice of the moment vs "BigH" in a 15 minute game.

Julio Becerra has won tournaments that I played in, but I have never played against him. The closest I came was sitting next to him. I played an International Master on board 2 while he played a FIDE Master on board 1. His skills are very impressive.

This BDG Ziegler (5...c6) can also be reached from a Gunderam (5...Bf5) move order. The most important thing is not how you begin but how you finish. White's advantage seemed to grow over the last 20 moves of this game.

This Gunderam 8...Bg6 is section 4.3 in my Blackmar-Diemer Games 1.
