Scandinavian Defence Good Time

Newspapers like the Dayton Herald concluded social gathering reports with, "And a good time was had by all." Some old southern hospitality politeness - true or not. Interestingly, both Tom Purser and I worked for this small town paper - 15 years apart - and long ago.

In this Scandinavian Defence, a good time was had by one - by me! I took a break from writing for what I hoped would be an easy chess game - didn't expect it to be that easy!

Some might wonder, where's the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit via 1.e4 d5 2.d4!? Fun fact: I play with both hands. For 50 years I've chosen 1.e4 and 1.d4 almost interchangeably. Just because I've played 2.d4!? more than most doesn't mean I don't also enjoy 2.exd5!

Sawyer (2005) - JackBach (1213), ICC 3 3 Internet Chess Club, 24.03.2020 begins 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 [2.d4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 is a BDG] 2...Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qe5+ 4.Be2 Nc6 [4...c6!? 5.Nf3 Qc7 6.d4+/=] 5.Nf3 Qf6 6.0-0 [6.Nb5 Kd8 7.d4+/-] 6...a6 [6...e6 7.d4+/-] 7.d4 e5? 8.dxe5 Nxe5? 9.Nxe5 Qxe5 10.Re1!
