Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-04-04  misguidedaggression: Kind of cocky, playing the Blakmar-Deimer Gambit against Emil Deimer...And winning! Maybe Deimer should've tried the Bogo-indian, instead?
Apr-10-05  Sirthursday: This is the Bogoljobov variation of the we have both player swapping sides, as it were.
Jul-26-05  who: Fritz shows 19.Be3 Qd6 20.Bf4 Qxe7 21.Rxe7 Ne8 as winning for white, so black's attempt to play for a win in that position may have been foolhardy. The final position looks drawn. Is there a win in here somewhere?
Oct-18-05  Runemaster: <who> If the score is correct, I think Black must have lost on time.
Nov-15-07  spock jenkins: it really does look like a draw. i let herr fritz spin his wheels for 15 minutes and i was seeing =0.00. maybe a long term plan is outside its horizon?

i agree with runemaster - looks like a loss on time.

May-29-11  bnabil: yes it's lost on time
it is a draw position
Jan-10-12  David2009: Diemer has an excellent record against Bogoljubov - here he passes up the draw by repetition only to lose on time later. 'Excellent' is in the spirited fearless nature of Diemer's play, coaxing inaccuracies from the great man. Diemer playing White preferred to castle king's side (Game Collection: The Brilliant Games of Emil Diemer).

The ending is tricky for both sides - at move 30 for White:

White cannot hold his extra Pawn: can you secure the draw for White against Crafty End Game Trainer? Even following the game line, I lost first time round. Link:

Apr-06-12  waustad: Excellent record? He won once in a simul. His brilliancies often remind me of Bloodgood, where he's stomping players who have only that game in the database.
