Nc3 exf3 5. Nxf3 e6 { Known as the Euwe Defence, a very solid way for Black to play and the 3rd most popular reaction to the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (BDG), the key is not to castle too early to give White a focal point for his attack.} 6. Bd3 Bd6 $6 {The bishop is normally played to e7 as it serves a better defensive purpose there.} 7. O-O O-O $2 {Unfortunately Black has not read the script and does indeed castle too early! This invites trouble as Alan has a ready made attack. The position can be defended but Black has to play so accurately hence the question mark awarded to this move.} 8. Qe1 $1 {As an experienced BDG player, and he has even written a book on the opening, Alan knows exactly what to do! The queen is heading for its favourite h4 square.} c5 $2 {Black has to get on with the development of his pieces by playing} (8... Nc6 $1 {to threaten Nb4 and remove one of White's best pieces from the attack. The move played does nothing to slow down Alan's attack as he is not worried about losing his d-pawn.}) 9. Qh4 Nc6 {Too late!} 10. Bg5 {Alan's moves are standard which is why, given the chance, the BDG is so much fun and there are so many short wins! Alan is now playing on autopilot!} h6 11. Bxh6 $1 {This move took no invitation and Alan found it in only a few seconds to rip apart his opponent's weak defences. As in the lyrics of Queen's popular single ... Don't stop me now! Don't stop me, 'cause I'm having a good time'!} gxh6 12. Qxh6 Re8 { There is no defence, it's mate in 7!} 13. Ng5 Bf8 {This speeds up the mate, now mate in 2!} 14. Bh7+ Kh8 15. Nxf7# {A brilliantly well constructed attack by Alan but I suspect most of it could have been played in his sleep!} 1-0
