King's Gambit Morozevich Win

I've had loads of fun playing and studying the King's Gambit off and on since the 1970s. In the game Alexander Morozevich and Arkadi Vul, White wins with a wide open attack in the Kings Gambit Accepted in the 3.Bc4 line sometimes called the Bishop's Gambit.

Morozevich (2665) - Vul (2225), RUS Rapid GP Serpukhov, 23.02.2018 begins 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Nc3 Bb4 5.Nf3 [5.e5=] 5...0-0 6.0-0 Bxc3 7.dxc3 Nxe4 8.Bxf4 c6 [Black could try 8...d6 9.Qd4 Bf5=] 9.Bd6 Nxd6 10.Qxd6 b5 11.Bd3 g6 12.Ne5 Qb6+ 13.Kh1 c5 14.Nxf7 Qxd6 15.Nxd6 Nc6 [15...Ba6 16.Kg1+/-] 16.Bxb5 Nd8 [16...Rb8 17.Bc4+ Kg7 18.b3+-] 17.Rxf8+ Kxf8 [Next White threatens to win a piece.]
