Caro-Kann BDG Gareev Gambit

Timur Gareyev tries to take a Caro-Kann Defence and turn it into a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. The Russian Grandmaster Aleksandr Shimanov played the Black pieces. This Caro-Kann began 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4. Normally White recaptures with 4.Nxe4 with a good game. The opening theory of this position involves extensive deep analysis based on strategical understanding.

A tactically minded player like the Blindfold King Gareyev can offer an invitation to play a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit with 4.f3!? Black must play an early ...Nf6 by move seven to fully transpose to some exact BDG position. GM Shimanov avoided the BDG until White goes his own way on move eight. I always find it interesting that a grandmaster rated 2642 would avoid taking the gambit pawn. For a moment Black also avoided the draw by repetition. In the final position, White has a very slight edge.

Gareyev (2617) - Shimanov (2642), 3rd Chinggis Invitational Burlingame USA (8), 25.02.2017 begins 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.f3 exf3 5.Nxf3 Bg4 6.h3 Bxf3 7.Qxf3 e6 [7...Nf6 is a BDG Teichmann.] 8.Bd2 [8.Be3 or 8.Qf2] 8...Nf6 [8...Qxd4 9.0-0-0 Nd7=] 9.0-0-0 [9.Qf2 Nbd7=] 9...Be7 [9...Qxd4 10.Bf4 Qb6 11.Be2 Be7 12.Qg3=] 10.g4 [10.Be1!?] 10...Qxd4 11.Nb5 Qb6 [11...cxb5 12.Qxb7 0-0 13.Qxe7 Nc6 14.Qa3 Qd5=/+] 12.Be3 Qa5 13.Bd2 Qb6 14.Be3 Qa5 15.Bd2 Qb6 16.Be3 c5 [16...Qa5 draw by repetition.] 17.Bf4 [Black could be in trouble, but he will have some compensation for the Exchange after 17...0-0 18.Nc7 and 19.Nxa8+=] 1/2-1/2
