Playing that pawn sacrifice out of the classical starting position one would like to continue with Bg5, but that is impossible now.

Usually the king is already on g1. Yet Visser does not play this move because withdrawal symptoms are playing tricks on him, he just wants to threaten Bxb4. By the way, notice that the game has yielded a completely normal position. Compare this with Fischer Random Chess, where after the first moves one is mostly doomed to a kind of reparation chess.
