  fredthebear: After gambiting away the king's knight, White must strive to retain the initiative instead of trading down equally. White should follow known theoretical paths, as 6.Bxf7+ was necessary to keep the attack going. Black is just taking what's given to him.

  sea7kenp: One Kibitz that I read elsewhere, suggested that White has the Edge in a Muzio Gambit, "unless he plays timidly". I think this Game qualifies!

  fredthebear: 6.Qxf3 is clearly proper, main line. 6.Bxf7+?! is losing. FTB's horoscope must have been out-of-whack that day. Lines featuring a latter Bxf7+ belong to the Double Muzio Gambit. The sacrifice needs to be played as such that the Black queen will not recapture, causing the Black king to lose the right to castle.

Watch Johannes Zukertort - yep, the inventor of the Colle-Zukertort opening (advanced by Akiba Rubinstein) - knock around his chess teacher Adolph Anderssen in the Muzio Gambit, Sarratt Defense line played above. Zukertort vs Anderssen, 1865

Zukertort fashioned his own bishop sacrifice!
