Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-14-04  Knight13: Very nice mate! Black shouldn't have castled Knig side!
Premium Chessgames Member
  InspiredByMorphy: <Knight13> Castling kingside had little to do with blacks demise. 8. ...h6? is useless and a waste of time. Even so, black could have eliminated whites threat of 10.Nfg5! with 9. ...Nxe4 . Instructive game.
Dec-15-04  aw1988: Is this Blackmar as in the Blackmar-Diemer gambit?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: The A.E. Blackmar of the Blackmar-Diemer gambit was born in 1826 so it seems unlikely that this game was played by him unless the date is incorrect.
Feb-11-08  dzechiel: This IS the Blackmar of the Blackmar-Diemer gambit. However, Diemer wasn't around yet (he wouldn't be born until the 20th century), so you could only call this game a Blackmar Gambit.
Jun-07-08  derek.mourad: f3 should be answered by e5! and black has an advantage
Aug-25-09  WhiteRook48: is this guy Emil's brother?
Dec-23-10  ZucchiniMann: Entertaining.
Is it the first game ever of the Blackmar Gambit?
Dec-23-10  sevenseaman: A real quickie-no sooner spread than done.
Jan-17-12  Charousek.jnr: A good sacrifice followed by a brilliant mating combination.

  GrahamClayton: Farrar plays 8...h6 to stop a piece moving to g5, which Blackmar promptly ignores by playing a piece there anyway. The open f-file generated in the Blackmar Gambit by f3 is shown here with good effect by the exchange sacrifice 12. ♖xf6, removing the defender of the h5-square.
