    EDIT: How do you post a PGN...?
    The FAQ now gives instructions for posting a pgn diagram.

    Also, I noticed that 7...Ke3 should be 7...Ke6.

    I think blacks 5th move is a mistake but then without it it would not be a Fried Liver.

    To answer the question I don't mind it. After Nxc2+, Kd8, Nxa1 white has a dangerous initiative.

    In that position, I'd prefer black.

    There used to be a player around called Ih8sens who was quite good with this opening.

    I believe it was his engine that was quite good.

    Yes but I'm not sure how to convert that into anything. 1. Nxc2+ Kd1 2. Nxa1 Bxd5+ 3. Kd6 Ne4+ 4. Kxd5 Qd3+ 5. Kf6 Qxd8 doesn't work because of Bg4+ winning back the queen...

    If you play 1... Kf1 then black can simply play 3. Kd7 and I can't see much of an attack...
