Blackmar-Diemer Ryder Torning

Richard Torning sent me a game with this comment: "Greetings Tim, Glad your sabbatical has been productive. Keen to see the King's Gambit book! In keeping with the spirit of the BDG blog, I offer this 1-minute bullet game. Black was doing fine with a 13th move e4 knight outpost - which I encouraged hoping for kingside play. One reasonable-looking move, 17...g5?? which attacked my knight and offered an outpost on g6, was all it took to unravel the Black kingside protection. I departed from the only other game in your BDG MEGA database on move 9. Notice that the Black queenside R, B, and Q are still at home. A pawn, or two, is worth the 3 tempi in bullet games. Regards, Rick"
