Blackmar-Diemer Gambit 7, tricky & exciting

Thursday night's game at the chess club paired me against a higher-rated player that I have never won against, but have obtained a few satisfying draws. Our last few games had me playing black, but this game I had white. We both played relatively fast for a G/90 game, finishing with about half the clock remaining. Part of that was because of the early trade of all our pieces.

Lessons learned: (1) Study the opening lines. (2) Time left on the clock after the game is not useful. (3) Even when playing for a draw, keep looking for a possible win.
