Kevin Sheldrick played a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit and quickly reached a winning position. As we observed from the World Championship match between Carlsen vs Karjakin, some advantages do not end in victories. Sheldrick wrote this on the final day of the championship. It ended tied after regulation. Now the rapid play overtime begins.
“Hi Tim. I think I need to be more giving, especially at this time of year. This game is not that insightful as I think you would have covered this sort of thing before, but it was fun to play nevertheless. Analysis with Stockfish. Happy advent to all.”
“P.S. To try to boot Karjakin out of the world championship, I wonder if Carlsen will play the BDG tomorrow :)
“Rated blitz match, initial time: 3 minutes, increment: 0 seconds.”
Thanks for the game, Kevin. Magnus Carlsen does play almost any opening. Here is another exciting BDG Euwe game. Euwe 6.Bg5 Bb4 is section 2.4 in Blackmar-Diemer Games 1 and Blackmar-Diemer Theory 3.
