Hi Tibor,

Any advice about 1.d4,Nf6 2.Nf3(!) ?

Thanks

No. It is only about of the Budapest, no a repertoire book. In my case my main defense vs d4 is the slav so I can try to traspose to it with d5.

Combining the Budapest with the Blumenfeld (after 2 Nf3) could be a workable combo.

Without wishing to step on tibor toes, I’d advise against playing ...e5 after 2. Nf3 there.
Play something else, such as ...g6, ...e6, or ...d5.

Hello,

I have bought the book, but I have no enought elo strength (around 1900 FIDE) to give a proper in-deep analisys, nor I have the first edition to compare to. Anyway I can give a few comments about it:
1. It is a very good introduction to the opening, as all lines are cover in details with ideas, tricks and traps.
2. Games are very well annontated, there are even symbols for 'weapon' 'trick' 'plans' and other. This add a lot of value to your study.
3. I have been surprised by some coverage, i.e. in the Faj, the variation 4...b6 say is little explored and promise black good chances. In introduction he say this coverage is a novelty compared to first edition
4.  Author is honest with black chances. I.e. in the Bf4 line with 6.Nc3 and g3 he say white has very good and solid game, but he points that even that, black has many resources to complicate the game. In my opinion maybe at top level this variation should at least garantice white a draw and a good game to fight for a win, but after reading the entire chapter I has the feeling black could do very well in games below 2300.

I would definitly recommend the book.

If you want other datails aboud the book or any other variation, please let me know and can see that in detail and comment my opinion here.

Regards
Fer

Moskalenko Budapest Update

While perusing Amazon, I found a listing for an update of Moskalenko's Budapest book, purported to come out on November 20, 2017.

While I haven't played the Budapest in years, I'm still intrigued by this, as the Budapest was the first defense to 1 d4 I ever seriously studied, and might start playing it again occasionally, in rapid and blitz, for nostalgia's sake if nothing else.
