A small mistake by white can give black a decisive attack. It is not easy to find the best defense against it in a practical game and it is probably theoretically correct. ... It somewhat resembles the Blackmar-Jerome gambit: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+?! Kxf7 5.Nxe5+?!} 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Ke2 {The best defense is 6.Kf1! although after 6...Qe7 7.Nxh8 d5 8.exd5 Nd4 Black gets a strong attack.} Nd4+ 7.Kd3 b5 8.Bb3 Nxe4 9.Nxd8 {White has no defense; the mating finale is pretty.} Nc5+ 10.Kc3 Ne2+ 11.Qxe2 Bd4+ 12.Kb4 a5+ 13.Kxb5 Ba6+ 14.Kxa5 Bd3+ 15.Kb4 Na6+ 16.Ka4 Nb4+ 17.Kxb4 c5# 0-1
