Bryntse Gambit Revisited

In "When Two Pieces Beat a Queen" at ChessCafe, IM Tim Harding presents a tour de force treatment of the Bryntse Gambit (1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.Nf3!? dxe4 4.Ng5), focusing on the Queen-sac line made famous by Dana Mackenzie which arises after 4...Nf6 5.Bc4 Bg4 6.Qxg4! Nxg4 7.Bxf7+ Kd7 8.Be6+ Kc6 9.Bxg4 (see diagram above).  At the end of the article I get a nice mention for my article on the Bryntse-Faj (analysis here), which features 4.Ne5!? instead of 4.Ng5.  Too bad they messed up the link!
