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 both 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 to play for Black, but White's attack also develops naturally.
Exploiting the vast resources of the Deja Vu Chess Library™ John Crayton has found 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 in the arsenal of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit player, and anyone who has to face this fierce opening as Black.

There has been a great deal of literature produced on the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, especially in German language publications. A general introduction to the opening was published by Chess Enterprises in 1985 (Blackmar-Diemer Gambit by Eric Schiller) and thorough overview of the theory was presented by Reverend Tim Sawyer in his 1992 book Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Keybook, published by Thinkers' Press. The present work is intended as a more detailed examination of a specific variation, the popular Bogoljubow Variation.
The authors have discovered a number of additional games not included in Sawyer's volume, and have tried to present each game in full. There are about 250 complete games in this survey, compared with about 100 in Sawyer's book. In addition, National Master Eric Schiller has carefully reviewed published analysis and has discovered a number of improvements, especially for Black.
This is not surprising. It is generally easier to attack as White in the Blackmar-Diemer than it is to defend. The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is played almost exclusively among amateurs, because it is not sound enough for use by professionals. Amateur defensive technique is often deficient, and the overwhelming majority of games end in victory for White not because the attack was sound but rather because Black failed to find the necessary defense. In addition, the almost religious fervor of the fans of the opening insures that White wins are published, while Black wins sometimes fail to make it into print.
It is by no means clear that the Bogoljubow Variation is the best one for Black, but the fianchetto approach is much better than the literature indicates, and we have not found any certain path to full compensation for White. In particular, the defense 8..Bf5 may be under-rated. The approach taken in this book has been to try to find improvements for Black and create an objectively balanced evaluation of the main lines, while presenting all known alternatives.
The task of evaluating positions is not an easy one, but in general we have tried to avoid characterizing a position as equal when there is an imbalance of material, as is commonly seen in Sawyer's book. In our
opinion, if White is down in material there is either sufficient compensation, in which case White usually has the better chances, or there isn't, in which case Black should prevail in the endgame.
The material presented in this volume is hardly the last word on the subject. We hope that our offering is a contribution which will prove to be of both practical and aesthetic value, and that the reader will enjoy playing over the exciting, if often flawed, games.
