I know stockfish considers bc5 and d5 a blunder but I have proven before they are good moves:

What are your thoughts and comments about the game?
Wow! That is a very powerful countergambit! I can't believe Stockfish can't calculate this. :) GG @Ben2006Tor
Not so sincerely,
It is a very intersting gambit for sure but you need much knowledge to play it
I love the traxler because it usually forces critical mistakes from the opponent like in this game. The Italian opening is the first one that I fully analyzed and learned and I love the many interesting lines it could have. The Evan's gambit is probably my favorite line.
I had always found Ng5 to be an annoying move for black and thought that d5 would be the only good reply. But I found that the traxler forces white to play extremely accurately and prove that taking on f7 gives white the large advantage.
I don't try it as much anymore though because I have raised my rating and am now playing against tougher players, who don't fall for those traps as often.
8 exd5 seems good for white
@tpr 8.exd5 is indeed the main move but after nd4 black is doing fine, its a complex line, and I have analayzed all the lines in my study, I can link it if you want
@TMac310 yeh its my favorite opening, many players still fall with that trap and they are rated 2000+, and even if bxf7+, black is not doing to terrible as I have proved in my study
8 exd5 Nd4 9 d6 still looks good for white. Example
5.Nxf7? no need to look this game
I played 12. Nxd4 at blitz before
@tpr ıf you know theory Nxf7 equalize game 9. h3 or d6 so good 9...cxd6?
9.h3 Bh4 book
@tpr cxd6 is a terrible choice for black qxd6 is much stronger, here ill paste the study link: lichess.org/study/auQOYlM5
@turkiyem021 9.h3 is acutally a strong move which I have not thought of, but main move is d6, I will add h3 line to study, you can see my study for more info link: lichess.org/study/auQOYlM5
