Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Wight

The Roman philosopher is credited with saying, "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." David Wight wins this Blackmar-Diemer Gambit when both sides get lucky on move 13. White routinely pressed on with the attack by 13.Qh4 while ignoring the queenside danger. Black missed 13...axb4 winning another pawn to create a fatal weakness with 13...g6. After that, all was right in the BDG world and White won quickly.
