I'm just including the first 6 moves because the rest are irrelevant.

This sequence should serve as a warning; it's very rare that your opponent hangs a pawn in the very beginning of the game. More likely, it's a well-tested trap or "poisoned pawn." At the very least, it's a gambit that allows the opponent to equalize without very sharp play. Look twice for the trap, and then look again.
