Championship of China: Cochrane Gambit

The below game is from the Chinese Championship.  If you play the Russian Game as Black, you must be prepared for the Cochrane Gambit.  The sacrifice is not as speculative as it appears and White often gets full compensation for the piece, as in this game.  Black plays the relatively rare 5...c6 and White plays a nice novelty, 7.f4.
