More adventures in the Traxler

As part of my obligation to show every Traxler game I play, I present the following. There was a bit of nostalgia with this one, as I routinely handed out severe beatings to my opponent when we were twenty years younger. This time he played a fairly innocuous variation (Bxf7+ followed by Bc4) while I probably missed the strongest replies. Eventually we reached a position where I was better, but I'd had enough excitement for one night and offered a draw. This may be a sign that I am getting old.
