7...d5 8.exd5 Nxd5 9.Qe2+ Be6 10.Bg5 Be7 is the standard reply for black.

7...Nxe4 allows 8.d5 Ne7 9.Qd4 Nf6 10.Bg5 Ng6 and now all of 11.d6, Bb3 or Nc3 look tempting. White's chances have certainly improved after the unfortunate Kf1, but if you feel "White has nothing", go for it.

After 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Bc5 4 c3 Nf6 5 d4 exd4 6 cxd4 Bb4+ 7 Kf1?!, I belive 7...d5 is the theoretical recommendation but is their anything wrong with 7...Nxe4?
