Karel Traxler (1866 in Vlachovo Březí – 1936 in Volyně) was a Czech chess master and composer of chess problems. As a Roman-Catholic priest, he rarely played chess in serious competitions. The Traxler Variation in the Two Knights Defense, which was first demonstrated in the Hostouň game of 1890 against Reinisch, is the hyper-aggressive variation that he is most famous for.
Overall, the game Reinisch vs Karel Traxler is a brilliant example of attacking chess, and has inspired many players to try the Traxler Counterattack in their own games.
I will add one more game to demonstrate a slightly different line. It was taken from my database as usual.
The tactical idea that arose in these games is also known as The Traxler Trap or the Wilkes-Barre Variation. Overall, the Traxler Trap is a beautiful example of attacking chess, and has inspired many players to try the Traxler Counterattack in their own games. However, it is important to note that the Traxler Trap is a tactical idea, and it is not always the best option in every position.
