Hi greenpawn, it's a Compromised Amar Gambit (6.e4)
[The move order could be a bit different, from this position Welling gives:]
"Because of the critical game Staples Hempson, 1971, 6...Qh4 is regarded as a refutation. Staples found nothing better than 7.Kg2 but won the game".
I'm guessing these players are British - do you have their full names?
