Wight Wins Blackmar-Diemer

David Wight wins a wild Blackmar-Diemer Gambit with a pair of risky regal recaptures. Both kings stepped onto the open f-file highway and got run over by a check. Each king would have been winning if they stayed home and let others do the fighting.

On move 15, White was winning with 15.Bxf1! Instead he played 15.Kxf1 which allowed 15...Qxf8+. On move 18, Black could win a piece with 18...exd3! Instead, he played 18.Kxf8 which allowed 19.Bxh6+. Whereupon Wight as White won wonderfully.
