Are there any books or articles that cover the Hungarian defense against the Giuoco Piano for black ?


New in Chess Yearbook 107 had coverage of the line that goes

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Be7 4. d4 exd4 5. c3

https://www.newinchess.com/Yearbook_107__2013_-sy-103.html

The idea with 4. d4 is the critical one against the Hungarian, as almost everything else transposes either to lines of the Italian, Spanish and other King Pawn openings, or closely related positions. Even the line discussed can arise from another sequence, namely 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Bc4 Be7 5. c3 although most games would have continued with 4. .. Nf6.

Having tested it in two games I'm not so convinced by the advocacy of 5. .. Na5 in the NIC Article. One opponent just allowed me to gain the Bishop pair, whilst the other offered a pawn by 6. Be2 . Not taking the c3 pawn gave Black a difficult game. It's also possible to meet 4. d4 with d6, but the idea of exchanging on e5 and then on d8, either immediately or a move or two later is also difficult for Black to meet.
