Fred Haley sent me a link to the following Live Chess game played on Chess.com. His higher rated opponent "nisapradila" was listed as being from Indonesia. Their contest was in the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. Most players prefer to recapture with the knight after 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 with 5.Nxf3. Dr. Ryder played 5.Qxf3 which offers a second gambit pawn on d4. E.J. Diemer played both moves.
The tricky part of the BDG Ryder Gambit is revealed most clearly when Black plays as below with 5…Qxd4 6.Be3 Qb4 attacking b2. White castles 7.0-0-0. The tempting blunder 7…Bg4? leaves Black in deep trouble as Fred Haley demonstrates.
Earlier in 2016 I wrote about the Real Dr. Ryder BDG story. BDG Ryder 6.Be3 Qb4 is section 1.4 in Blackmar-Diemer Games 1 and Blackmar-Diemer Theory 3.
Haley (1864) - nisapradila (2313), Chess.com, 06.12.2016 begins 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Qxf3 Qxd4 6.Be3 Qb4 [6...Qg4!] 7.0-0-0
