This is the Traxler Counterattack (ECO C57) under the best circumstances, following a series of blunders from white. The opening begins with the Italian game, 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6, and then 4. Ng5, making a double attack on the f7 square. Black pays no attention to the attack and plays 4. Bc5, and after 5. Nxf7, white is going to suffer a terrible fate...
