Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Torning

Richard Torning of Australia wins a quick Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. Black only employs the queenside and ignores the kingside of his army. In affect Black fights with one hand tied behind his back. White delivers a swift bullet knockout in his own variation.

"Greetings Tim: Happy New Year. I like the rare opportunities I get to play my variation. This is a 13 move brevity with a pawn move to checkmate! If my opponent had played Nd4!? instead of Nb4? I would sac my queen on b5 with a check. It leads to interesting play... regards, Richard Torning"
