Every once-in-a-while I like to do a search on the internet for "Jerome Gambit", to see if something new (to me) turns up.

I recently came across Chess Maniac's Friday, July 12, 2013 post, titled "Chess Miniatures 11", which had a Bill Wall game that I was unfamiliar with.

Wall – NN
Internet 2013

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+

Jerome Gambit.

4…Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ Nxe5 6.Qh5+ Ke6 7.f4 g6?

Instead, 7…Qf6 was normal.

8.Qxe5+ Kf7 9.Qxh8 

At this point Black resigned in Wall - DGTS, FICS, 2011, which is in The Database.

Perhaps in the current game, Black felt the need to deliver a "spite check" before striking his colors.

9...Qh4+ 10.g3 Black resigned.
