If anybody's wondering, it's actually called the traxler counter attack and it's in the italian game. The italian game is when white play the king's pawn then brings the king's knight out and then the king's bishop out two squares from the pawn. The traxler happens when black brings out their knights and then white pushes their knight forward threatening to plant it right next to black's king attacking both black's rook and queen. To do the traxler black ignore's this and brings out the king's bishop. White will probably take and they the bishop is sac'd by checking the king and then the knight jump's forward checking white again and then the queen comes and it's almost lost for black.
