    For the ones interested, GM Boris Alterman covered two variations of this fantasy variation in his gambit guide blog: http://www.chessclub.com/chessfm/index/alterman/index.html
    (you need an account, but a free trial account is easily made)
    Part one covers:
    3... xe4
    4. xe4 e5
    5. Nf3
    And how similar this play is to the King's gambit

    Part two covers:
    3. ... e6
    4. Be3
    One of the games he covered was this one with a double knight sacrifice
