Traxler variation

    The Traxler variation is a very sharp and exciting variation in the Two knights defense and a good alternative to the standard 4...d5. I have won a lot of games in this variation and it always makes me happy when I have the chance to play it! Today I played this little gem in a 3-minute blitz game on chess.com. Thoughts and comments are appreciated.

    Very very nice game! Long live the Traxler! :) When I'm playing Traxler, I just hope for 5.Nxf7 & 6.Kxf2 Laughing

    My recent game:

    Why did you label 7.Ke3 with "!"?

    Cool.  I've always liked the 2N's Def and this is an example of the fun Black can have.  Sometimes, that is.

    Thanks for your kind words and a nice miniature you've played! I know according to theory 7.Ke3 gives White the best chances. 7.Kg1 is also good but more drawish.

    Thought you might be interested in a Traxler "swindle". In this case, I'm the victim, so to speak......
