Bishops Gambit Why? Why sacrifice a castling possiblility when u can end up in almost the same situation by tossing out your king knight first?

Do you mean that you want to castle in a different way instead of playing "0-0" by dislodging your knight on g1? And if so, what does this do with a Bishop gambit?

The question is... probably about KG line (e4 e5 f4 Bc4). I think that main idea is to prevent d5. Brunetti can obviously say more:)

Actually the PROBLEM is with ...d5. Qh4+ has been seen less and less because it exposes the queen too early, not nearly enough to justify preventing White's 0-0. The real problem with 3. Bc4 is that it exposes the bishop to attack by a timely ...d5, returning material for counterdevelopment.
