All Over But the Annotations

The following Jerome Gambit game was over so quickly, it only seems fair to continue with some "what if?" annotations - from earlier Bill Wall games.

Wall,B - Guest2892618, 2015

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+ 

4...Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ Nxe5 6.Qh5+ Kf6

Black needed to either move his King to a safer square - 6...Ke6 - or block the check with 6...Ng6 or 6...g6

7.Qf5+ Ke7 8.Qxe5+ Black resigned

Of course, Black could have continued with 8...Kf8 

(Instead, Wall, B - Guest1468523,, 2013, continued: 8...Kf7 9.Qxc5 d6 10.Qd5+ Ke7 11.0-0 Nf6 12.Qg5 h6 13.Qxg7+ Ke6 14.d4 Black resigned.)

9.Qxc5+ d6 

(Or 9...Ne7 10.0-0 d6 11.Qe3 Be6 12.f4 Qd7 13.f5 Bf7 14.g4 Re8 15.d4 Bc4 16.Rf2 g6 17.Qc3 b5 18.b3 Bf7 19.Bh6+ Kg8 20.d5 Nxf5 21.gxf5 Re5 22.Nd2 gxf5 23.Qg3+ Bg6 24.exf5 Rxf5 25.Rxf5 Qxf5 26.Rf1 Qxc2 27.Rf8 checkmate,  Wall,B - SMNN, FICS, 2013.)
