Unusual Blackmar-Diemer Win

Don't take anything for granted. Routine moves are not the only way to win with the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. When Black played the Teichmann Variation 5.Nxf3 Bg4 6.h3 Bxf3, White avoided the normal 7.Qxf3! and won after the unusual 7.gxf3.

I am not sure why the veteran player Dennis Madsen took with the pawn against Joakim Aasen in Denmark. Maybe White did not want to drop the d4 pawn, but that pawn in poisoned at the moment. After 7.Qxf3 Qxd4? White takes on b7 with the queen. Either the Black rook or the Black king will fall after a few harmless checks.

In this game Madsen worked up and interesting kingside attack and won quickly. Note my Blackmar-Diemer Series (4 books in 1) is available in KU, digital, and paperback.
