A Wandering Tour through the Traxler Counter-Attack


I don't go looking for trouble, it finds me............. another Traxler.

Paste game in this link

(1699) - Takchess (1514)
Rated game, 20m + 6s Main Playing Hall, 23.01.2007
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Nxe4+ 7.Ke3 Qh4 8.g3 Qh3 9.Nxh8 d5 10.Bxd5 Qh6+ 11.Kxe4 Bf5+ 12.Kf3 0–0–0 13.d4 Nxd4+ 14.Qxd4 Qh5+ 15.g4 Qh3+ White resigns (Lag: Av=0.32s, max=0.6s) 0–1

I think 7..Qe2 is book and a better move here.

    Seems really wild. You games seem to be like that. Do you consciously seek complications?

    A belated thank you for the links to the Alapin and KG games, as well as for the tips on playing the KG declined. My cold is fading fast, so hopefully I'll be in shape for the fight.

    Nezha, games with complicated lines interest me . The Traxler, The Marshall Attack and Muzio Gambit. These I have studied and tend to know them better than many of my opponents.

    I don't necessarily seek complications in lines I do not know.
