My new book Blackmar-Diemer Theory 3 provides accurate analysis of the Gambit Accepted after 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3. This book has the 50 variations that you are most likely to see. All analysis was checked with chess engines.
Is Blackmar-Diemer Gambit sound? That’s a loaded question. Statistically White has scored 58% from the 4.f3 BDG position. That compares favorably to 54% for all other openings. On a practical level it is sound. I’ve won 2000 games with the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. My performance rating after 4.f3 is 101 rating points higher when I play the BDG. Your results may vary!
Playing a gambit is like being in a horse race. There is always a “rabbit” horse that starts quickly out front. That horse is passed by another moving faster once that winner gets up to speed. The player who accepts the gambit is out front at the first turn. The gambit player has a lead in development and open lines, so he is gaining quickly and making threats as he assembles his army. How do you win from behind? You must go fast and hard. Here is a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit that I won vs NoamChomsky.
Blackmar-Diemer Theory 3 is available in kindle or paperback.
