Blackmar-Diemer Gambit 5.Qe2

For Blackmar-Diemer Gambit fans, I plan to post games on Sunday and Wednesday. Richard Torning sent a BDG without Nf6 (Torning Variation 5.Qe2) game with this note:
"Greetings Tim (from down under!) Thanks for putting 'my' games / variation in your BDG5 book, much appreciated! I use Kid_Coach as a handle to break the monotony. (I shouldn't play chess when I fast twice a week but its the main time I get to play. Plenty of rubbish in bullet games at 1 minute each!) It is more often than not that I am on the other end of a nice attack. Here is a nice win against lexsoos using my pet 'Torning variation' against the BDG Zeller Defense."

Kid_Coach (1801) - lexsoos (1879), Casual Bullet game lichess, 03.11.2017 begins 1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 Bf5 3.e4 dxe4 4.g4 Bg6 5.Qe2 Qxd4 [5...e6!?] 6.Qb5+ Nd7 7.Qxb7 Rd8? [7...Rb8 8.Qxc7+/=] 8.Nb5?! [8.Be3!+-] Black missed a brilliant queen sacrifice:
8...Rb8? [8...Qd1+! 9.Kxd1 Nc5+ 10.Ke1 Nxb7=] 9.Qxb8+! Nxb8 10.Nxd4 [White is up a rook and winning easily.] 10...e5 11.Nb3 Bb4+ 12.Bd2 Bxd2+ 13.Nxd2 Ne7 14.0-0-0 Nd5 15.Nh3 c6 16.Bg2 Ke7 17.Bxe4 Rd8 18.Bxg6 hxg6 19.Rhe1 Nd7 20.c4 N5b6 21.b3 f6 22.Ne4 Ke6 [22...Rh8 23.Re3+-] 23.Nc5+ Nxc5 24.Rxd8 Ke7 25.Rdd1 Nbd7 26.f3 Nb7 27.Nf2 Na5 28.Ne4 Nxb3+ 29.axb3 c5 30.Rxd7+ 1-0
