    13 Rxd7 is better.

    8.Qxb7 is fine. Morphy was just being a fancy pants.

    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.
