Jerome Gambit: Never Knew What Hit Them (Part 2)

As mentioned in the previous post, recently I was exploring the internet and ran across a number of fun games by Vladymyr Yurev, of Ukraine, at Some were Jerome Gambits, some were Jerome-ish.

Clearly some of his opponents did not know what to make of his openings, and succumbed quickly.

Here is another example.

Vladymyr  Yurev - Elsid
15 0, Instant Chess, 2017

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 h6 

The Semi-Italian Opening. Safety first.

4.Bxf7+ Kxf7 5.d4 Nf6 6.dxe5 Nxe4 7.Qd5+ Ke8 Black resigned

Black will drop his Knight on e4, remaining a pawn down, but it is clear that his resignation had to do with not knowing what hit him.
