"Dear Tim: Here is a 5 0 Blitz game played on 2/1999 at the San Antonio Chess Club tournament where I defeated a solid expert, John Hyltin. It shows a transposition from two other openings to get to a typical BDG attack. He has been an "over the board" tournament expert for over 25 years. I was rated about 1780 at the time. He has been very strong with the French Defense and the Nimzo-Indian, but still, I was very happy to get to play the Winckelmann-Reimer Gambit (deferred) against him after he avoided my Paleface Attack (deferred). My opening strategy was trying to get some form or "cousin" of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit against him to have a fighting chance. His 7...exf3?! gave me that chance! Sincerely, Gary Zintgraff"

16.Rxf6? [Much better for White would have been: 16.Bxg6! Qf8 17.Bxf7+ Qxf7 18.Nxf7 and mates] 16...Qxf6 17.Qh7+ Kf8 18.Rf1 [Resigns. With more time he might have tried 18...Nf4 19.Qe4 Qh6 20.Qxf4 f5 21.Qxc7 Qg7 22.Qd6+ while 18...Qxf1+?? or Ke7?? both lead to mate or an overwhelming White position.] 1-0 [Edited Notes by Zintgraff]
