Modern Horowitz Variation of the Max Lange Attack

I have posted a file that may be of interest to some on what I like to call "The Modern Horowitz Variation of the Max Lange Attack" which goes 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Bc4 Nf6 5. O-O Bc5 6. e5 d5 7. exf6 dxc4 8. fxg7! Rg8 8. Bg5! I will be writing more here about it later today and including a bibliography of sources. For now I present you with the java applet and PGN.

The applet mentions that 9.Bg5 f6 10.Re1+ Kf7 11.Bh6 Kg6 12.Qc1 leads to no advantage for White, but I was successful against Chessmaster 7000 with 12.Qd2 Bg4 13.Nh4+ Kf7 14.Qf4. After 14. .. Qd7 15.h3 Be6 16.Nd2 Bd6 17.Qf3 Ne5 18.Qh5+ Ng6 19.Ne4 White is better. Black played Rxg7, losing. No better is 19. .. Bb4 20.c3 dxc3 21. cxd4 Qxd4 22.Rad1 Qxb2 23.Nc5! Bxc5 24.Rd7+ Ke8 25.Qxc5 +-

Hope this line gets some attention in the analysis.
