Mike Serovey Defeats Mark J. McClaughry

I finally found an old correspondence chess game that I won playing the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. This game was also a Teichmann defense. That seems to be the most popular reply to the gambit so far. In this game a low rated player freaked out over my kingside attack and resigned prematurely. Oh, well. I'll take a win any way that I can get one! The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
