Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Hartelt

The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit punishes routine development in a most violent manner. Here Black played 3...Nf6, 6...Bb4, 7...Bxc3, and 8...0-0. These moves seem reasonable, but White can almost win by force after eight moves. Instead of the natural Ne5 and Bg5, Rob Hartelt played 9.Ng5 and 16.Ba3 which worked in this case for a quick checkmate.

My new book Blackmar-Diemer Games 8 has 182 recent BDG games.
