Traps and Zaps: Two Knights, Max Lange Attack

You probably saw enough silverware yesterday, but please don't forget the "fork"! 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. d4 exd4 5. O-O Bc5 6. e5 d5 7. exf6 dxc4 8. Re1+ Be6 9. Ng5 Qxf6?

White to move

I should mention that Pandolfini's answers in Chess Openings: Traps And Zaps are far more complete than the fragments I'm quoting here.  He's very good at explaining the tactical specifics, then drawing a general conclusions that you can use in similar opening positions.  Anyway, click below for the answer.
