Blackmar-Diemer Games 2

Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 continues the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit adventure with Declined and Avoided lines! Tim Sawyer analyzes 225 games. This version includes a BDG classification, updated commentary, and an Index of Names to Games. The author tells stories and explains the chess opening strategy. This book contains Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Avoided lines after 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 such as Blackmar Gambit 3.f3, 3.Nc3 lines without 3...Nf6, Poehlmann 3.Nc3 f5, and Lemberger 3.Nc3 e5. The BDG Declined lines 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 (without 4...exf3) include Caro-Kann O'Kelly 4.f3 c6, Vienna Defence 4.f3 Bf5, and others. The final chapter has 1.d4 Nf6 BDG Avoided lines such as the Sawyer Variation 2.f3 d5 3.e4 e6 4.Bg5 and the Huebsch Gambit after 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4.

This is the second of the four Blackmar-Diemer Gambit volumes intended to replace the old BDG Keybooks. Blackmar-Diemer Games 2 covers the gambit declined in five chapters each with 10 sections. The games of Tartakower, Sawyer, Zilbermints, Quinones, and many more players provide creative ideas. They demonstrate how to win bold chess attacks with energy and success. Try it!
