The Greek gift sacrifice it a classic bishop sacrifice on h7. The most common opening used in the Greek Gift is the French defense.

There are more variations than that, but those are the basic.

Try it out in your blitz games!

    Move 10 in the variation where Black declines this sac is flawed as Nxf7 is immediate mate!
