there was a morphy game that was very similar to this one.
He beat two guys playing against him almost exactly the same way. It is illustrated in the Complete Idiots Guide To Chess Openings...
13 Rxd7 is better.
8.Qxb7 is fine. Morphy was just being a fancy pants.
Yes, perhaps the most recognized game in the world shows why 3.Bg4 is bad.
Sure, but after Qb4+ it's not nearly as entertaining :p
One recent obvious-epiphany I had when trying to refute a poor opening set up was... let them live with it! I thought, ok, I'll spend the next 15 moves trying to get good development / good squares for my pieces and I'll check back with my opponent then... 15 mover later he was miserable lol.
Here is my kill a poor opening and he resigned.
