May-04-15  wrap99: Instead of 6.h3 what about the bishop sac bxf7ch and after kxf7 n-g5ch does white end up with a rook and two pawns in exchange for a knight and bishop. Black also can't castle and winning the knight takes a while.

Opening Explorer with almost 3/4 black wins. Probably the reason why it's not so popular from white's perspective. ;)
