Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (BDG)[edit]

3. Nc3[edit]

White has brought his minor piece into action and taken control of the middle. Simultaneously, he has put pressure on Black's e4 pawn, which Black must now try and defend. Nf6 or Bf5 would most commonly be used to defend the lone pawn, while e5 gives the option of a pawn transfer.
