Sample pages (pdf)

The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4,d5; 2.e4, dxe4; 3.Nc3 or 1.d4,Nf6; 2.Nc3,d5; 3.e4) is a dangerous attacking opening which has amassed a cult following amongst club players and a loyal band of supporters like no other in chess. White sacrifices a pawn in return for a strong initiative which tests Black's defensive capabilities to the limit. The BDG's objective soundness is open to question, but there is no doubting it's success and popularity over the board, where pressure and a ticking clock make attacking much easier than defending!

In this book, International Master Christoph Scheerer offers a detailed analysis of the gambit. In thirteen chapters he covers all Black's major defences and some less common continuations, outlining the most promising lines for White and the most resilient defences for Black. He highlights the many tricks and traps awaiting the unsuspecting player.
The book deals only with the gambit accepted and not attempted transpositions into other openings (e.g. the French Defence after 1.d4,d5; 2.e4,e6)

Christoph Scheerer is an International Master from Germany. He has a string of tournament successes to his name, including winning the 2001 Kiel Open, and has been a regular competitor in the exceptionally strong German Bundesliga.
