Blackmar-Diemer Gambit 5...e6

White sacrifices a knight on f7 in this exciting blitz game using the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. Black defended with 5…e6 known as the Euwe Variation. This line is almost as popular as 5…Bg4, but I've found it amazingly easy for Black to go wrong after 5…e6.

Black was the slightly higher player in this game, but she missed a few key tactics at blitz speed against an experienced player who frequently plays the BDG.

White won material and increased his advantage. He eventually mated his opponent in this contest between Thom2 Christensen of Denmark vs Zala Urh of Slovenia.
