3. Bc4 is one of those fairly regular moves that defer the opening selection of the Scotch Gambit (1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Bc4) and the Danish Gambit (1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. c3 dxc3 4. Bc4). 3... Bc5? is a well-known mistake because of the Bxf7+ followed by Qh5+ sequence. That's why Black's move is normally 3... Nc6 or 3... Nf6.
