I think NIC are issuing a new version of their book on the gambit by Moskalenko. That might have some new ground for black?

A game published in Timothy Harding's "MegaCor3" CD. The move 13...Ra6-g6 is covered in Glenn Flear's latest installment from today.

MNb gave the improvement 16...d6 17.Nd5 Qd8 in the same comment and asked: how will White make progress?



14...d6 has already being played. This is 13.Rc1 not your 13.Ne4 line (which is indeed nice).

That's nice too, although I'm not sure if I would call the final position +=. Nb1 is also more close to equality than white advantage .

maybe Black's best is: 13.Rc1 Qe7 14.c5 d6 15.cxd6 Qxd6 16.Nb3 Qe7 17.Qc2 c6 18.Nd4 Be6 19.Nxe6 Qxe6 +=

edit: 14.Nb1 is an option, which can transpose to 13.Ne4 Qe7 14.Nc3 d6 15.Rc1

Nice lines! Many thanks!

The move e4! in many variations is the center of your idea (useful for many correspondence players, but who would remember OTB?) Therefore what about 17...f5 (no comp availabale right now) or 13...b6

Actually, what does Tim Taylor say?

EDIT: 15...Qe7 (MNb's idea, to not be vulnerable to f4) 16.Nc3 c6 17.Qd4 Be6

13.Rc1 Qf6 14.b3 (14.b4? Qb2 wins a pawn as far as I can see) d6 15.Ne4 Qe5 16.Nc3 c6 17.Qd2 Bf5 =

losing a pawn is sometimes called a gambit: 14.b4 Qb2 15.Nb3 (or 15.b5 Qxa2 16.c5 Qe6 17.Qa4) Qxa2 (15...d6 16.c5 (or 16.Qc2 Qxc2 17.Rxc2) dxc5 17.Rxc5 c6 18.Rc2 Qf6 19.Qd4 Qe7 20.Rd1 Be6 21.Rcd2) 16.Nd4 Qa6 17.Nb5 Qc6 18.Bf3 Qb6 19.Qd4 Qxd4 20.exd4 this is not fun
the other line: 14.b3 d6 15.Ne4 Qe5 16.Nc3 c6 17.Qd2 Bf5 18.f4 Qe6 (18...Qe7 19.e4 Bxe4 20.f5 Nh4 (20...Nh8 21.Rf4 d5 22.cxd5 Bxd5 23.Nxd5 cxd5 24.Bf3) 21.g3 Nxf5 22.Rf4 +-) 19.Rce1 d5 20.cxd5 cxd5 21.Bf3 Rad8 22.Rd1 (or 22.Bxd5 Qb6 23.Kh1 (or 23.Rf2 Ne7 24.e4 Be6 25.h3) Ne7 24.e4 Nxd5 25.Nxd5 Qd6 26.exf5 Qxd5 27.Qxd5 Rxd5 28.Re7) Ne7 22.Nxd5 Nxd5 23.Bxd5 Qe7 24.Qe2 white's a lot better
black's knight on g6 is just not very well placed

On a lighter note: (Notice how white goes from 2 pawns up to 2 pawns down)

Hello Stigma and thanks for the reply.

After 10.a3! Black must play Bxd2+! (You' ve gotta know your limitations) 11.Qxd2 d6 and although I have no comp right now, I see nothing wrong in Bck'las position after e.g. 12.0-0 Re8 13.Rad1 Ng6 14.Bg3 Bf5 15.b4 b6 16.Qd5 Be4. White may have a slight pull,  but black's position is very solid, which is the trademark of the Budapest; an ultra-solid opening in which black strives for equality (as in all other major openings against 1.d4)

Stigma, thanks for linking to that thread! That was the one I was thinking of. Your idea with a later a3 seems like a very strong one.

Qe5 is a bit vulnerable if White heads for an attack with f2-f4 and e3-e4. That's why I think 13...Qe7 more precise. Sure White was better after 14.Nc3 c6 15.Qd4 d6 16.Rad1 Rd8 17.f4 Petursson-Bastian, Olympiade 1994. But 14...d6 15.Nd5 Qd8 and how does White make progress? The only downside for Black I can see is that he doesn't have any realistic winning chances.


Instead of 10.0-0, I recommended 10.a3 trying to force a transposition to 7.a3 lines in this older thread: http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1233238304/27

If Black has to exchange on d2, he reaches somewhat depressive main lines where White can rely on his bishop pair to cause problems; Taylor was trying to avoid this in his book. But 10.a3 Bd6 11.Ne4! also looks promising for White. Do you have any improvements, Roeczak?
