Fun Little Traxler Game

Here's a fun game I played at the bookstore on Friday.  Perfect example of interference.

    Looks like there are lots of other white players who wish there was a refutation...

    nice game!

    I agree with namn kiev, Bxf7/Bb3 leads to a nice game

    I always play 5.Bxf7+ and 6.Bb3 with good results!

    I love playing the Wilkes Barre as black and though I havent collected the stats, I am fairly certain I  have won a lot more than half of these games. I'm guessing you have too, Beez. Its certainly worth learning for those who like open tactical games. As far as I understand, the theory is that after 5. Nxf7, black is better, but after 5. Bxf7+ white is better. Either way, the "theoretical advantage" is probably irrelevant at below master level. The bottom line is there are plenty of opportunities for white to make fatal errors and thus for black to get a spectacular win.

    Of all the Wilkes Barre games I've played, however, I've never seen the mating combination you found, Beez. Lovely!!

    One of my friends showed me this opening recently, but we could not justify it in all lines...this one turned out smashing, though :)
