Sharing HauntedKnight - galpone, blitz, FICS, 2014 (1-0, 18) in "Familiar Territory" earlier this year I wrote
When I was playing over this game, I saw Black's move and chuckled. HauntedKnight practially owns this line.That doesn't mean, of course, that Bill Wall can't "borrow" it.
7.dxe5 Bxe5 8.Qd5+
In "Shortcut" I expressed a preference for this move over the also-strong 8,Qh5+.
8...Kf8 9.Qxe5 Qe7
Black's Queen comes to the rescue, but White has already recovered his sacrificed piece and is a pawn up, with a safer King.
10.Qf4+ Nf6 11.Nc3 d6 12.0-0 Qe5 13.Qxe5 dxe5
Exchanging Queens often means the end of danger to the King - but not today.

Please note the White Bishop at d6!
