Mike Serovey Draws Richard Booher

I have found what appears to be the very first correspondence chess game in which I played the Blackmar-Diemer gambit. This is the last of the old correspondence chess games that I will publish here. All things considered, it is doubtful that I will play this gambit ever again unless I chose to transpose into it from the Scandinavian defense and use it as a surprise weapon. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
