Blackmar-Diemer Zeller Mitkov

White avoided a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit with 1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 Bf5 3.f3 Bg6 4.e4 dxe4 which transposed to a BDG Zeller. Players rated over 2000 rarely choose this from the move order 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Bf5 4.f3 Bg6, but the Zeller move 3...Bf5 is more common for players rated below 1800. In Joshua Sheng vs Nikola Mitkov, Black outplayed his opponent, although White did have some attacking chances.
