In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shows how a 2600-rated Grandmaster got defeated in the Traxler Counterattack. It was the game played between Jacek Tomczak and Al Mikhail Antipov.

The Traxler Counterattack, also known as the Wilkes-Barre Variation, is a chess opening variation in the Two Knights Defense that begins with the moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5. It is one of several ways Black can avoid the Fried Liver Attack.

You will learn how to counter both the White’s moves 5.Bxf7+ and 5.Nxf7.
