This is a great smothered mate trap.
I think it is called the Blackburne Shilling Gambit - named after a GM called Blackburne, who used to trap cafe visitors with this line for a shilling a time.
The post that was quoted here has been removedIt's called the Blackburne Shilling mate. "Graham Burgess calls 3...Nd4 the "Oh My God" trap." "3...Nd4 is sometimes known as the Kostic Gambit, named after the Serbian grandmaster who played it in the early part of the 20th century."
