New Trap!! Down Under BBQ Disco Opening Trap

Hello Everyone! I have searched and searched to see if this puzzle has a name. No it doesn't, but for some reason, a lot of people know it!

And my nickname used to be Sausage, but I can't remmember why. And the Disco, well I am "Aussiedj" DJ DISCO are releated!! So here is the trap, Please PLEASE COMMENT of what you think of it!!!!

    Haha yeah I couldn't agree more. I used to play a heap of blitz and bullet on here, and although I am absolutely shocking at quick games, the most evident thing was that position beats material any day.

    Yeah well the thing people forget when they analyse with engines is that chess is a sporting contest...I used to forget this a lot myself.

    Even if the engine says it is not good, 99% of people would not be able to defend such a dangerous position when miles behind in development..just look at games from the mid 1800s for proof. Laughing

    How many games end with a win for one side and later the loser cries "I was winning!" after checking it? The fact is... "YOU LOST" heheTongue Out

    Also, don't worry I wasnt offended Wink

    Considering you only had a quick look over the position I thought I would have a deeper look. My intent was just to help out by adding to your analysis. My apologies if it came across the wrong way. I am actually a Tactics Trainer Moderator & Approver, so I have developed an eye for spotting tactics (although I also have an eye for making blunders too :p), so that move seemed to jump out at me. However, you're right, after seeing that move I couldn't find any good response so I did end by double checking to prevent me from looking silly if I missed something :)

    Regardless, it's an interesting concept you've shown. Trading material for great piece mobility and dynamics.

    Instead of 5. Bb5+, much better is 5. Bh6! This is a game winning move, however this shouldn't happen because blacks 4...Nf6 is a mistake.

    If you look at my post you'll see that I said "this just a quick glance and could contain holes"....It was for instructive purposes to show that white doesnt need to just sit around and do nothing, or be greedy and blind. 

    Well done in getting the computer out and finding the truth of the position though. Cool

    looks beautiful, but what if 3. 0-0-0  g7 instead of f6 what seems more safe to me..i meant for brendans game

    I think counting the points in a line like this could be a little dangerous and options like the following need to also be considered.
    It is my own quick analysis and could contain holes, but is an example of white's ideas if he decides to continue in gambit fashion.
