An example of the game played through some of the lines in Silicide. See post a few weeks back. It gives white some active knight play.

    Have you seen this amazing look at the Traxler? I am referring to the five-part series that site links to, not necessarily the site itself.

    I have but not in depth. I am currently working through the Heisman Traxler Chessbase Cd which is a very good . I am confusing some of the lines which has made for some ugly games on my part. I suggest you give it a try as it is great fun to play.
