Welcome to my Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (ECO D00) game with Pirella!
On this page I have posted one my chess games in which I played the White side of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, Teichmann defense.
The game includes analysis and diagrams. It seems that I have lost almost every time that I have played this opening!

Seventh Brandon Chess Club Action
Round 2, Board 3
Date Played: 20 July 1990
White: Mike Serovey(1740) Black: Pirella (Rating unknown)
1. d4 d5 2. e4 dxe4 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. f3 exf3 5. Nxf3 Bg4
Thus begins the Teichmann defense. I have gotten this defense almost every time that I have played this opening.
6. h3 Bh5 7. Be3 (Playing 7. g4 might have been better here.) e6 8. Bb5+ c6 9. Bc4 Bd6 10. O-O Nbd7
White has a slight lead in development as compensation for his pawn, but I doubt that it is enough. In general, the gambit player needs to get three tempi (tempos) for each pawn that is sacrificed.
11. Qd2 Qc7 12. Ng5 O-O-O
White is still down a pawn. The exchanges on e6 even out the material with a Rook and pawn for a Bishop and Knight. It also gives White a queenside pawn majority. However, with the Black King on the Queenside that majority may not be enough to win.
13. Bxe6 fxe6 14. Nxe6 Qa5 15. Nxd8 Qxd8
The material is now even. White wants to start removing the pawns from around the Black King. This makes the attack on the Black King a little easier.
16. d5 Nb6 17. dxc6 bxc6 18. b3 Qd7 19. Qf2 Qc7 20. Bxb6 axb6
Black is threatening to play 21… Bc5 wining the White Queen for a Bishop and White misses it! Computer analysis shows that after 21. Ne4 Nxe4 22. Qf5+ Kb8 23. Qxe4 Black is wining but I don’t see it. It looks even to me.
21. Rae1?? Bc5! 22. Re3 Re8 23. Rfe1 Rxe3 24. Rxe3 0-1
After 24… Bxe3 25. Qxe3 White would be down a Bishop for a pawn.
