Double-Muzio Gambit A crazy line of the Kings Gambit, and I will start a mini-tourney on this once I finish my current.

1.e4 e5
2.f4 ef
3.Nf3 g5
4.Bc4 g4
5.0-0 gf
6.Qxf3 Qf6
7.e5

I would love any imput on this.

Why double? And why crazy?:)
I would call double Muzio line with Bxf7. And I would like to participate in tourney (if time control will not be too fast).

The Muzio.... ....a favourite of brunetti, and you could do worse than study his games.

double-muzio So far as I know the line you have given is the "regular" Muzio Gambit. Double Muzio is:
1. e4 e5
2. f4 fe
3. Nf3 g5
4. Bc4 g4
5. 0-0 gf
6.Bxf7+ Kxf7
7. Qxf3 etc

yes yes, and playing Bxf7 in the next few moves makes it a "double." - for obvious reasons. Typical line of play is (after 5. 0-0 gf 6. Bxf7+ Kxf7 7.Qxf3 Qf6 8.e5 Qxe5 9. d4 Qxd4+ 10 Be3!)

harakiri fianchetto btw, the craziest idea I ever came across relating to this line of play (Muzio gambit) is called a "harakiri fianchetto" when white sacs another piece by playing b3?! followed by Bb2?! (if black hasnt grabbed the rook already) to lure black's Q away from the defense of her husband. But it's by no means sound of course, and could lead to quick loss against a good defensive player.
I guess if we throw in a Bxf7+ into the mix along with the harakiri fianchetto, we can have "The triple Muzio!" :)
