Today’s blog entry is from is from an online, turned-based game. The Ziegler Defence of my Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. Black made a mistake pinning the f3-Knight and with the mate threat, did not salvage the pinning Bishop. The remainder of the game features several interesting moves that occur in the slow, careful White attack.
The variations and move symbols are Houdini’s (1.5 w32), diagnosed with ‘Scid vs PC’ at 10 seconds per ply. The opening book reference is Stockfish. The verbal comments are my thoughts during the game and my interpretations of the analysis provided by Houdini. The score chart is at the bottom of this entry.
This game features a winning attack due to an early material advantage. Black eventually resigned when he could not prevent the pawn’s promotion.
