    I've played this same game a few times, once even OTB against a FM in a blitz tourney. It's always fun :)

    8...g6 does give Black the advantage, but it's still a nasty trap though and if it beat an NM then it must be worth a shot.

    After 8...g6 black will follow up with Nc6-d8, h6, and win the e-pawn, when white can grab the exchange with Nf7-xh8 but he'll be behind in development and have a rook against two pieces while black has the bishop pair. 5.Bxf7+?? simply leads to a terrible position for white (-2.2) unless black falls for the extremely obvious mate in two.
