Oct-10-05  Knight13: This game is related to 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nd4 4. Nxe5? Qg5!! 0-1(Most likely, but some Black players still lose even though they get a piece for 2 pawns).

Oct-13-15  kereru: I actually caught someone in this trap once... unfortunately he played 6.O-O! Qxe5 7.c3 Nf6 8.cxd4 Bxd4. I'm still better here but he eventually outplayed me (he had about 400 rating points on me).
