batgirl, I like how you argue your points, by showing games like yours, the Karpov and Anand gamed and others. You're teaching me how chess moves are discussed.
I just played a game as black with this opening and my opponent played 5. Nxf7. I didn't make the Traxler move, but I did win the game down a rook but ultimately up a queen with opponent resigning. I remembered this article and came back to look at it right after the game. Thanks. I'm going to remember that Traxler bishop next time I find myself in this situation. "...players...sometimes go brain-dead...", hehe, yes, esp when facing a 19th century type of swashbuckling move!
