Traps and chess club

I am playing through all the King Gambit traps in Pandolfini traps and zaps book.

Here is a trap in the Falkbeer Countergambit.

White could of done a couple of things to help himself. 10 Bc2 and 12 h3, this reminded me of this game where white wastes time trading off his advanced pawn
Rosannes vs Anderssen

I played this two games last night at chessclub both against Bob. A Ruy as black
which developed along Marshall attack lines but white diverged by playing d4. I was
ahead in this but made some tactical errors to lose this.

I played a Halloween Gambit as white and at one point hung my queen and black missed it we both saw it on the next move. a little sloppy play on my end.
