The following game from the Jerome Gambit thematic chess tournament presented at the website provides a framework for how a number of computer chess programs address a particular opening line. (I have been guided in my own assessments by Stockfish 7.)

8.dxc5 Qxc5 9.Nc3

Or, 9.Be3 Qb4 10.Bd4 Nc6 11.Bxf6 gxf6 12.Qd5+ Kg7 13.Nc3 Qxb2 14.Qd3 Ne5 15.Qd2 Qb4 16.Rab1 Qc5 17.Rb5 Qc6 18.Qe3 d6 19.f4 Ng6 20.f5 Ne5 21.Rf4 b6 22.Qg3+ Kf7 23.Rd5 Bb7 24.Qe3 Rag8 25.h3 Rg7 26.Rd4 Rhg8 27.g4 h5 28.Kf1 Ba6+ 29.Kf2 hxg4 30.h4 Rh8 31.Ra4 Rxh4 32.Rxa6 g3+ 33.Kg1 Rxf4 34.Qxf4 Qc5+ 35.Kg2 Qxc3 36.Ra3 White resigned, Demon 1.0 - Comet B48,Torneo tematico GaJero00-A, 2009 


White has only a pawn for its sacrificed piece, but has some play against Black's uncastled King.

10.Bg5 Be6 11.Bxf6 gxf6 12.Qh5+ Ke7 13.Rab1 

This is a mysterious Rook move, indeed. Perhaps better was 13.Kh1, preparing 14.f4.

13...Rag8 14.Rfe1 Rg4 15.Qh3 Rhg8 16.Kh1 Rxg2

Removing White's King's protection.

17.Qxg2 Rxg2 18.Kxg2 Ng4 19.Re2 Qe5 20.f4 Qxf4 21.Kg1 Kd7 22.Rd1 Bc4 23.Red2 Qg5 24.Kh1 Qc5

White has no counterplay and soon will be vanquished.

25.Na4 Qe3 26.Nc3 Bf1 27.Nd5 Qf3+ 28.Kg1 Be2 29.Nxf6+ Nxf6 30.Rd3 Bxd3 31.Rxd3 White resigned
