Black's position is extremely difficult to play over the board, but "Fritz" may have found a precarious path to survival in the immediacy (but probably very little more) :

<9. Qh5> Be7 10. Nxf7! Bh4+! (<10...Nf6?> - Bird / Dobell vs NN, 1886 loses outright). 11. Qxh4 Kxf7 12. Nd5 d6 13. Qf4+ (but <13. b3!?> may be better) Kg6 14. d3 Nd7 15. Nxc7 Ne5 16. Nxa8 Nf6;

Bird also played <9. Nd5> in this positon. This seems less effective after <9... Na6> 10. Nxf7 c6 11. Nxh8 cxd5 12. d3 Qg1 13. Qxh7 Qg7 14. Qh5+ Kd8 15. Nf7+ Kc7.
