Very very nice game! Long live the Traxler! :) When I'm playing Traxler, I just hope for 5.Nxf7 & 6.Kxf2
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......
I am a bit late. But what is a good setup for White in this line? Swapping off the knight on c6? Is this c3, d4 setupt White's best try to neutralize the bishop or is d3, Be3, Nbd2 better? Cheers!
Where are you, Traxler players? I know you are there. You always go after me when I am trying to have a peaceful game of chess with a cup of coffee...
There was an article on New in chess for free. It is still online.
Google for "Another Look at the Traxler Gambit"
IMHO Part III is the easiest way for White to play against the Traxler. The line with 5.Bxf7+ Ke7 6.Bb3
Thanks for the suggestion. Cool article. Appreciated!
