Henry Atkins was a British International Master who liked playing the Danish Gambit.  He won the British Championship 9 times between 1905 and 1925 (7 in a row starting in 1905).  Here is a game in which he won by playing a Danish Gambit and swindling his way to a smothered mate.  By the way, he sacrificed some pawns, both is bishops, a knight, both his rooks and his queen!  He finally mated with a lone knight.
