As I write this the new year has arrived in London, and as far as I know, the promised new book, "The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit: A Modern Guide to a Fascinating Chess Opening," from Everyman Chess, has not. The Everyman website still has the book due in the USA in December. However, a reader recently informed me that he had heard from Everyman that "This title is now looking like a March publication."
So, maybe next year. Or by the time you're reading this, maybe this year. Maybe 2010.
And maybe next year this year, 2010, I'll get back to more frequent postings on these pages.
Thank you for reading this. May the new year bring you and yours the best of everything.
I enjoy playing chess, and specifically, the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, the BDG, which many insist is not chess at all. Maybe so--I'm too old to argue.
But I enjoyed playing the BDG so much that I bought the company. Well, no, but I did publish a little magazine about it, called BDG World, for fifteen years. That was a long time ago. So I thought I'd revisit a few of those pages here, plus add a little new content about the BDG, its storied advocate, E. J. Diemer, and whatever else strikes my fancy. Thanks for reading.
