This game was listed as the biggest upset at Little Rivers Chess Club's chess.com online tournament, Premium Member U1500, as of day 3. 

It plays an exact King's Gambit up through Black's move 4, which, upon seeing what follows, must be classified as a mistake.  White plays a series of moves which force Black to move his king around the board, resulting in a quick and easy mate.

This game really makes one appreciate the Fischer Defense (d6), which would have opened up an early escape route for Black's king.

This is defintely a game to be studied, or at least reviewed, as it appears to be an easy trap to fall into (or to set) when playing the King's Gambit.
