unsure if 12....nd4 is correct but it seem to prevent queen trading in later moves I will need to check my Heismann traxler Cd

    You expect too much from me. I never played the Muzio in a serious game and I never studied the theory behind it. I did play it in rapid games (with succes) though, what means that it is perfect playable without preparation.

    I said that Gallagher said that the Muzio is drawish. Today I looked it up in his book and it is not true. He said:
    After 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 there are two common continuations for white: 4. Bc4 and 4. h4
    In this book we shall only be examining the latter. Although 4.Bc4 is of great interest, both historically and analytically (especially the famous Muzio or Polerio gambit), I feel that the best white can hope for is an equal game.

    His book only treats the 4.h4 and not the Muzio. And 4.h4 is what I play. If you are interested in my repertoire as Kings gambit player I can send you the PGN's by E-mail. You can drop me a line (my E-mail adres is in my sidebar).

    I appreciate you digging more into the Gallagher book. The KGA and KGD are the basis for some very interesting games. I am surprised that it took me this long to appreciate it. I think I listened too much to some of the negative comments of some gms regarding it. All openings are playable at my level 8). I am creating some KG game collections on chessgames.com and will post links in time on my blog. I'll shoot you an email as I am very interested in the h4 lines you are playing.
    Thanks again
