King Gambit Stinker

In honor of Blue Devil Knight who is planning to play the King Gambit as white, I'm posting this stinker that I played on playchess this morning. I knew that there was going to be a effort to trap my queen. At one point, I could of avoided the queen loss by giving back material a Knight for the h7 pawn but was unwilling to do it.

Gone two week with reduced tactical study. I need to do a tactical infusion before tournament play on Saturday in Bow NH . Hope to gain a few points in my ratings again.
