Toss a Grenade into the Openning

Another game where white "blows up" the F7 square and plays for crazy compensation!

    Black was not prepared for 3.Bc4 instead of the most frequent 3.d4, and played a "standard pattern" (Bg4) without enough calculation, too early. With a Nf6 this wouldn't have been a mistake.

    5.Bxf7! is good. But even better was 4.Bxf7!, because after 4.d3 Black had the chance to either reply 4...e6 defending the combination, or 4...Bh5.

    A funny variation is 4...Bh5 5.Ne5! Nd7! 6.Qxh5 Nxe5, all with f7 being the hot spot.
