Blackmar-Diemer Avoided 2...Nc6

Sometimes when you try to play a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit you may get sidetracked. Miroslav Petrekanovic of Serbia appeared to be headed for a BDG with 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3, but this game did not completely follow that path.

Petrekanovic plays a wide variety of interesting openings. For example in this event Petrekanovic had White in a Rinor after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Bf4. Last year in the 29th Belgrade Trophy Petrekanovic played 1.b3 and lost to Grandmaster Yermolinsky.

Petar Poleksic was born in 1993. He usually plays 1.d4 and 2.c4 as White. Earlier this year he had played 1.e4 Nc6 2.Nc3 e5 as Black against Smolovic. Here against Petrekanovic in Belgrade, Serbia Poleksic avoided the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit invitation. After 1.d4 d5 2.e4 Black defended by transposing to the Queens Knight Defence with 2…Nc6.
