Blackmar-Diemer Comeback Win

Comebacks in sports parallel chess games when the losing side finds a way to win. My wife and I enjoy Tom Brady comeback victories. The Patriots don't always win, but they can. Before Brady was born my wife routed for Fran Tarkenton of the Vikings. Here's a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit comeback from Minnesota fan Rob Hartelt. His game against Davidjoequintero became messy. When Black failed to execute the win, Rob Hartelt found a nice checkmate. See my Blackmar-Diemer Theory 4 for how to play this line.

Hartelt - Davidjoequintero, Chess with friends, 21.01.2018 begins 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.f3 f5 4.Nc3 Nf6 5.Bf4 e6 6.Qe2!? [6.fxe4 fxe4 7.Nge2=] 6...Nh5 [6...Qxd4=/+] 7.Be3 f4 [7...Bb4=] 8.h4?
