Product Code: CB0164RB

Alternative Views:


The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 e4 dxe4 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 f3 exf3 5 Nxf3) is an exciting line which is very popular among amateur chessplayers, who have been debating the merits of the opening bpth over the board and in correspondence play for many years. White sacrifices a pawn but obtains a strong attack in return. 

The Bogoljubow Variation (5..g6) has traditionally been one of the most popular reactions for Black. The solid defensive formation created by the Fianchetto of the bishop at g7 followed by rapid castling is in many ways one of the easiest play for Black, but White's attack also develops naturally. 

Exploiting the vast resources of the Deja Vu Chess Library John Crayton has founded many examples of this opening which are not known even to connoisseurs of the Gambit. Over 250 complete games are presented, and National Master Eric Schiller has provided fresh analysis of critical lines and unearthed some new ideas for both sides, making this book an indispensable weapon ion the arsenal of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit player, and anyone who has to face this feirce opening for Black.
