Blackmar-Diemer Dutch Haines

Ray Haines attempted to play a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, but Black avoided it with the Poehlmann Variation 3...f5. This transposed to a Dutch Defence normally reached by 1.d4 f5 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 dxe4. Now White had 4.Bc4, 4.Bf4, and Bg5, but 4.f3 played by Haines is probably the best move. Black attacked a White rook on move 31, but there was no time to capture it. White won with a barrage of checks.
