Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-07-07  Rubenus: 11. Qh5+ is too greedy. White shouldn't try to win more material if he is already a rook up. Just give some material back and develop.
Oct-14-07  RookFile: Well, I personally don't see how black wins after 11. Qh5+ g6 12. Nxg6

  tpstar: 12. Nxg6?! loses the Queen to the Discovery 12 ... exd4+ & 13 ... Qxh5.

Another Traxler miniature.

Oct-14-07  RookFile: Ah yes, thank you tpstar, I set the wrong position up in my analysis.

- 13...Qxf1+ 14.Bxf1 Nxh5 15.Nh4 Bg4+ 16.Ke1 and white is a ♗ up

- 13...Bg4+ 14.Qxg4 (not 14.Be2?? Qxf1#) Nxg4 15.Rxf2 Nxf2+ 16.Ke1 dxc4 17.Kxf2 hxg6 18.Na3 and white is a ♗ up

- 13...Qxg2 14.Nf4+ Nxh5 15.Nxg2 dxc4 16.Ne3 and white is a ♖ up for a ♙

- 13... Nxh5 14.Rxf2 dxc4 15.Rf8+ Kd7 16.Rf7+ Kd6 17.Rxh7 and white is a ♖+♙ up

Dec-23-07  Silverstrike: <whiteshark> Fair point. Good analysis. :)
May-24-08  jon01: So, how should black win after 8. Nxh8 then?
Sep-24-08  MEISTERBRAU: the right move for black after 8. Nxh8 is Qg5+
9. Kxe4 - d5+
10. Bxd5 - Bf5+
11. Kf3 - Bg4+
12. Kf2 - Bxd1
13. Rxd1 - Qf4+
14. Bf3 - Nd4
so white is even ahead in material, but you don't want to play this against a strong player... the whole traxler is about tactic against material,
so what?
Sep-26-08  popski: Man, this are wild games! Usually with scary unbalanced positions, where no one really know who's winning who. Pure tactics, clash of nerves, especially in blitz games! Traxler is really great fun!
