Reading Gary Lane's The Bishop's opening explained, I saw there was an easy way to transpose into the King's Gambit Declined. The first game of the Vienna Options chapter, (King's Gambit Declined) gave this line:
Here are a few high level thoughts for you...
I'd much rather be white after Bxf7+. Black's king is stuck on the soon to be open f-file. White has a huge initiative on the kingside with plenty of space for all his major pieces to jump right into the attack. Also there is, of course, the impending O-O+ which is a brutal developing move with tempo. Also white has a huge pawn majority in the center. These things are white's compensation, and it is more than adequate. In general, even without calculating every possible variation, this is clear. Think of it in terms of all the tactics on the kingside will favor white. It will not be hard for white to put together a strong attack.
After 13...Nc6, something like 14.e6+ Kxe6 15.Qg4+.
after Bg4 i dont think u should take the knight on f3. should probably continue play Be6 if whites play h3.
