Nicolas Normand of France wins with the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Ryder. He finds a mating attack in a similar fashion as seen in the BDG Euwe Variation. Nicolas sent me this comment: "I succeeded in winning a 1950-Elo player of my club on the board in a 5mn blitz with the same position and 10.Bxh6 sacrifice."
The Ryder Gambit 5.Qxf3 is a risk in the same way double teaming a player in sports would be. White's offensive threats are so dangerous that Black does not bother with whatever is left uncovered. If your opponent has plenty of time, if he never gets nervous, if he always defends perfectly, then you could be in trouble. Real chess is not like that.
Your opponent will miss things when you make big threats, especially in blitz play. Here Normand rips open Black's kingside. White finds a forced checkmate. At the end, Black has only two pieces remaining and those pieces never moved.
