Apr-07-04  d4Nf6Bg5: Bh5? what a strange move....
Apr-07-04  iron maiden: 6...Bh5 is attempting to protect the f-pawn and defend against Bxf7#. Actually 6...Be6 would have worked slightly better, but even so White can topple the house down with 7. Bxe6 fxe6 8. Qh5+ g6 9. Nxg6.

  tpstar: A Center Counter trap, where White's quick development pounds on f7, but Black could have avoided this problem with 3 ... Qa5. After 5 ... Bg4?, I like 6. Bxf7+! Kxf7 7. Ne5+ Ke8/Kg8 8. Nxg4 winning a clear Pawn and Black can't castle, whereas 6. Ne5 Be6 7. Bxe6 fxe6 leaves Black in a very bad way, although material is equal. But not 8. Qh5+?? Nxh5.

You missed 8...♘xh5 :-)

Apr-04-07  Mountainman1: Bh5 was probably played in panic, since he understood that he had walked into an opening trap.

<iron maiden>,
One hole in your line - 8...♘xh5.
