Blackmar-Diemer Avoided Wight

David Wight heads toward the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. His opponent avoids the BDG by transposing into the Nimzowitsch Defence line 1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4. Black threatens the d4 pawn. White's natural aggressive response is to push 4.d5 and attack the Nc6. Wight pinned the knight with 4.Bb5 which is also playable. Black made some mistakes under pressure. White found a nice crisp checkmate.

My book Queens Knight 1.Nc3 & 1...Nc6 (Second Edition) has 188 games played by mostly masters in these openings systems. It's also in paperback.
