Traxler is dead ?!
Here you can see my game with Thibault:
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Nxe4+ 7.Ke3 Qh4 8.g3 Nxg3 9.hxg3 Qd4+ 10.Kf3 d5 11.Rh4 e4+ 12.Kg2 0-0 13.Bb3 Rxf7 14.Qg1 Qf6 15.Rf4 Qe6 16.Nc3 Qh3+ 17.Kf2 Be6 18.Nxd5 Nd4 19.Rxf7 Bxf7 20.Nf4 Qf5 21.Bxf7+ Qxf7 22.Qd1 g5 23.Qg4 Qf6 24.Kg2 Rf8 25.b3 Nxc2 26.Rb1 Ne1+ 27.Kg1
It is not finished yet. But it looks like a draw.
-- My 16th move was a mistake. Only chance to play for win is 16.d3. -- I could make much better 14th move: 14.Rf4 with possible 14.. Rxf4 15.gxf4 Be6 16.Nc3 Rf8 17.Qh5 g6 18.Qh4. P.S. Hi, Thibault! :D

HA HA HA! :)
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Nxe4+ 7.Ke3 Qh4 8.g3 Nxg3 9.hxg3 Qd4+ 10.Kf3 d5 11.Rh4 e4+ 12.Kg2 0-0 13.Bb3 Rxf7 14.Rf4 Rxf4 15.gxf4 Be6 16.Nc3 Rf8 17.Qh5 Rxf4! 18.Qe8+ Rf8 19.Qxe6+ Kh8 20.Nd1 e3 and black has at least a draw! Funny!
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-26 13:25:29)
So now I am looking at move 16.d3.
It is so funny to refute me by myself! :)
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-26 13:48:40)
16.d3 looks good! :)
16.d3 Rf8 (again! :D) 17.Qg1 Qf6? 18.dxe4 and white stands very promising.
Better for black is 17.. Qxg1+ 18.Kxg1 exd3 19.cxd3 Nb4 20.d4 (20.Nc3 Nxd3 21.Nxd5 Nxc1 22.Rxc1 c6 23.Ne7+ Kf7 24.Nf5 Bxb3 25.axb3 Rd8 - draw IMO) and white have little chance to win.
I must look for something better. :)
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-26 14:15:24)
Ok, 14.Qg1 still the best.
After 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Nxe4+ 7.Ke3 Qh4 8.g3 Nxg3 9.hxg3 Qd4+ 10.Kf3 d5 11.Rh4 e4+ 12.Kg2 0-0 13.Bb3 Rxf7
14.Qg1 Qf6 15.Rf4 Qe5 16.d3 (16.Nc3?) exd3 17.Qf2 Nd4 18.Nc3 Nxb3 19.cxb3 c6. Unclear.
I must find something stronger for white. And before 14th move. :)
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-26 14:48:40)
What about 13.Nc3?
Now I remember why I didn't like a move 13.Nc3.
Look at it:
13.Nc3 dxc4 14.Qh5 Be6 15.Ne2 Qd5 16.Ng5 e3+ 17.Kg1 h6 18.Nxe6 Qxe6 19.dxe3 Qd6 and black has serious chances to draw.
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-26 14:54:18)
I feel that I must forget about my pet line
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2.
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-26 14:58:11)
Now I am looking to line 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kf1 Qe7
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-01-07 19:14:02)
Game with Steve Sabean (5.Nxf7+)
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kf1 Qe7 7.Nxh8 d5 8.exd5 Nd4 9.d6 Qxd6 10.c3 Bg4 11.Qa4+? (my mistake :/ ) Nd7 12.Kxf2 Qf6+ 13.Ke1 O-O-O 14.Nf7 *
Now Steve can get draw with 14.Nf7 Nc5 15.cxd4 Nxa4 16.Nxd8 Qh4+ 17.g3 Qxd8 =
12.cxd4? Bxd4 13.Ke1 Qf6 14.Rf1 Qh4+ 15.g3 Qxh2 -+
Instead of 11.Qa4+ I will play 11.Nf7 next time.
11.Nf7 Qb6 12.Qa4+ Bd7 13.Qb4 Nc2 14.Qxb6 Bxb6 15.Na3 Nxa1 16.Nxe5 with +/- IMO
It's funny to learn from mistakes. :)
Thibault de Vassal (2007-01-07 21:56:50)
That's real challenge :)
