  patzer2: Black's 7...g2+ is a Black opening trap in the Vienna and the solution to number 4917 in Laszlo Polgar's 1994 "Chess, 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games."

If 8. Ke2, then Black mates with 8...Qf2+! 9. Kd3 Nb4#

  patzer2: On the surface, White's 4. Bc4!? appears to be a less than ideal opening move. After 4. Bc4!? Qh4+! Black won all four games in the Opening Explorer. One correspondence player, when faced with this position as white, surrendered too quickly by opting for a quick mate with 6. Nf3?? Qf2# in H Christiansen vs O Hansen, 1968. White did better with 6. Qe1!?, but still lost in Swiderski vs G Marco, 1903.

If 4. g3??, then Black wins with 4...fxg3 6. Kf1 (6. Nf3 g2+ ) 6...Ne5 (threatening 7...Qf6+ ) 7. Kg2 Nxc4 .

White's best hope for survival in this variation appears to be 6. Qe2!? Nd4 7. Nf3 (not 7. Bxf2+?? as in K Braeunlin vs H Soelch, 1983) 7...Nxe2 8. Nxh4 Nxc1 9. Nd5 Rb8 10. Rxc1 b5 11. Nxc7+ Kf8 12. Nxb5 =. Would be interesting to see a solid test of this line.
