Blackmar Diemer Chess Books

Blackmar Diemer

The Blackmar Dierer Gambit is a aggressive opening for white. White starts the game with 1. d4 and offers the f-pawn a few moves later. This pawn sacrifice leads to rapid development and an open f-file. Black needs some precise play to defend against whites early attacking intentions. The opening is rather popular since the midst of the 20th century. On top level however the Blackmar Diemer Gambit is rare to been seen. On club level the opening is still popular and for no reason: the white player statistically has very good results with it. The main line is 1. d4 d5 2. e4 dxe4 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. f3 exf3 5. Nxf3, after which black has numerous set-ups to defend itself against the early white aggressive play. Experts on the opening are Eric Schiller, Christoph Scheerer and Tim Sawyer, who wrote several books on the topic.
