Today’s blog entry is from an online turn-based tournament game. White tried for his familiar Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, but Black countered with Nf6. White continued with the Paleface Attack, which is not in the Stockfish opening book. White concentrates his forces on Black’s castled King and one Black misstep leads to a quick checkmate.
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 suspicious pawn grab when Black is under a Kingside assault, resulting in an early checkmate.
