Sep-17-07  gambitfan: A superb Traxler counter attack!

Sep-17-07  gambitfan: Matu played 12 cxd4?!
Sep-25-12  scormus: <gambitfan> a kindred spirit?

12 cxd4?! looks like a good try, but loses comprehensively as well. Still a good plan OTB since B could go wrong. Best would be 12 ... Bxd4 13 Bf7+ Kd8 and WK looks in a sorry state and will have to give up the Q on d4.
