I've played this same game a few times, once even OTB against a FM in a blitz tourney. It's always fun :)
Wow! That's brutal.
8...g6 wins for black.
6.kg6 is the way to defend.
im trying to figure out why black put his king on g8 ive only seen computers make a move that stupid
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.
6...Kg6 7.h4 and you die a slow and painful death.
Ke8? would that work....barely?
8. ...g6 wins jack shit.
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.
A variation :)
