Evergreen Tactical Lesson

Searching the web, again, for Jerome Gambit games (see "Evergreen?" for a recent example) I encountered the following game in a list of miniatures at

Wall,B - Socolate 
FICS, 2013

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+ 

4...Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ Nxe5 6.d4 Bxd4 7.Qxd4 Ng6

8.Nc3 Nf6 9.Bg5 b6 

An error.

Tactical alertness is a tool that should be in the box of every Jerome Gambit player, as Bill quickly demonstrates.

10.Bxf6 Qxf6 11.Qd5+ Qe6 12.Qxa8 Black resigned
