No idea why a computer would prefer one over the other.
I guess it is because it has too
give preference to one of them.
Perhaps it's because Bxf7+ does prevent Black from castling
and it is winning a pawn. (most likely the latter).
Let your peers be your inspriation. Allow their bright light to guide
you as you stumble through the misty haze of the 64 squares in your
endless quest for the truth.
Actually I found this postion 30 times on the DB and White
did not play either 6.Ne5 or 6.Bxf7 in 16 of them!
Most castled or played 6.h3 with mixed results.
So ignore that set of peers. (even though the ratio is more than 50% )
I'll be having words with them.
But what is best. 6.Ne5 or 6.Bxf7+.

This is good, the attention switches from King to Queen.

After the first round White thinks:
"Well if he set up and fell for that one, he will set up another."
And so he retreats into his shell and waits.....
He did not have to wait long.
Conclussion. Either will give you a plus.
