    Good game I think,though it petered out into a draw.

    Hey ! Both you and your opponent have forgotten that this h4 bishop was en prise for 10 moves ! 😉
    It's for that kind of game that i love to play the traxler (NOT the wilkes-barre ...are you really Belgian? 😛 )
    The problem is : how do you convince your opponent not to play Bxf7+ followed by Bb3, d3, Be3, 00 ...
    With a simple and solid plus...almost a refutation.
    If you have the answer please tell me, i'm even thikning of giving it up 😞

    I tried the weird Qf8 after Bb3 OTB but apart from the surprise value i'm not sure it's worth much...

    I grumbled each time he didn't take it 😛
    That was my first Traxler game ever.Agreed Traxler is a more appropriate name,the guy invented it after all.Right?

    Besides prayer I have no antidote to Bxf7.

    Yes I'm really Belgian.
