Two questions about this game where I am white.
In an adventurous frame of mind, I played 4.Bxf7+. Can black safely take the bishop?
question 2, black did take the bishop and got deeper into trouble.What would the good players here have moved as black's 6th move.

Yes black can safely take the bishop on f7. If white follows 5.Nxe5+, black should move 5.Ke7, thus nullifying 6.Qh5+ and leaving black in fair shape. If say from your present end position and black does play 5.Ke8, then after 6. Qh5+-g6 7.Nxg6-hxg6 8. QxRh8 black answers with Nxc2+ forking whites King and Rook. As for black he should have answered 3.Bc4 with Bc5 or Nf6, thus following the Italian game type opening.

Thanks BrandonE. Here is how the game continued

and black is doomed, but as i suspected, it need not have ended this way.

Well instead of playing g6 blocking the check and thus sacrificing his rook a move later it cost him the game. He could have won back the rook had he played Nxc2 after white takes the rook on h8. All in all the position after Bxf7 could be played more so in blacks favor than whites, but alas thus is human error. I make blunders too. Mine are just more subtle.....sometimes. I hung my queen in a correspondence game about a week ago. I must not have been wearing my glasses!! Thats a good excuse.

after 6 g6 7nxg6 hxg6 8Qxg6+ ke7 9d3 Isn't White winning ?

Do you mean this position after 9. d3? I dont see any such advantage for white after black 9. Ne6 I would absolutely pass up the Nxc2+ fork with the rook and post my knight on e6 for extra protection against the next Bg5+ At any rate after 10. Bg5+-Nxg5 11. Qxg5+ it would be a trade queens game or even a draw by perpetual check.
