  fredthebear: Yes, it transposes to the Milner-Barry Gambit. The 5...Bd7 move order is seen in the Euwe Variation. (It certainly can be argued that White should not play the gambit giving away the d-pawn when Bd7 has already been played.)

In the final position, the en prise White queen has no safe retreat. If 20.Qxg7 Rag8 pins the White queen to the mating square on g2.

For what it's worth, 18.h3 prevents the Black battery on the diagonal from sacrificing the queen on the back rank for Philidor's Legacy (smothered mate) after 18...Qg1+ 19.RxQg1 Nf2#.
