Fried Liver Attack

An attack by White.

1. e4, e5
2. Nf3, Nc6
3. Bc4, Nf6
4. Ng5, d5
5. exd5, Nxd5
6. Nxf7, Kxf7
7. Qf3+ ....

There are many variations after this, depending on where the King goes.  The King is ultimately chased all over the board.

Another variation to this game is the Two Knights Defense Trap,  an attack by Black, and which has the same opening as the Fried Liver Attack.

1. e4, e5
2. Nf3, Nc6
3. Bc4, Nf6
4. Ng5, d5
5. exd5, Nd4

Instead of taking the d pawn, Black's Knight goes to d4, and leaves his f-pawn very vulnerable to attack.

6. d6 ....

6. .... Qxd6
7. Nxf7, Qc6

At this point, Black attacks the Bishop at c4 and the g2 pawn.

8. Nxh8, Qxg2
9. Rf1, Qe4+
10. Be2, Nf3 mate.
