Hi,

While we're on the subject of the Budapest, I've been playing as White: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5?! Wink3.de5 Ng4 4.Nf3 Bc5 5.e3 Nc6 6.Bd2!? and have a perfect score in rated play.  I only have a couple of examples between GMs to go on:  Taimanov-Szabo (1967) and Ftacnik-Blatny(1988) serve as my model games.  I've done ChessBase research of the opening which suggests that White scores just fine with it (around 60%).  But I have my doubts since I haven't seen anything written on it since an article by IM David Berkovich in 1993. 

Does anyone have specific recommendations for Black in this line?  Fritz is just about useless, claiming that Black has a slight edge yet can never keep that edge with sensible play from White.

Dear Budapesr player!

I was wonder a lot - why this Lalic critical line was never repeated since introduced in 1988?   ???

Proboably, there is an improvement.

What I have found you can see in the second edition of the ChessBase CD on the Budapest. Wink

Dear Bernhard,

I've found some interesting ideas for Black, exactly what you're looking for, but you'll have to start subscribing as they'll be in my January 2004 update that will come out in a few days.
Happy reading!

Dear Chesfriend,

Actually looking at Bogdan Lalic's 1998 Batsford book the Budapest gambit, I've noticed that Bogdan suggests to meet 12 Qd5 with 12...Qe7! as in the famous Black win Akesson-Tagnon, Berlin 1984.
This sems to give Black a double-edged game whereas lalic's win over Mukic is very one-sided after 12...Ba7?!

Dear Chessfriend,

You're right that NCO's suggestion is still critical. Funny why this hasn't been followed up by others who bring the knight to e4 rather than b5, which is less clear.

There might be an improvement in there somewhere...

What about the Fajarowicz Variation with 3... Ne4!? 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. a3 d6 6. exd6 Bxd6 7. g3 Nxf2 8. Kxf2 Bxg3+ is a neat trap and there are many others as well.  Even if white doesn't fall for one of the many traps, black can still mount an offensive.  Tim Harding has written a very good article on this opening and Arthur Bisguier has played this opening as well.

My advice would be give the Faj a try.

I wasn't familiar with that game, but here's another game with a similar motif (advance of White's f-pawn) that put me off the Budpest:

Spassky,B (2560) - Illescas Cordoba,M (2530) [A52]
Linares Linares (7), 1990

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 Ng4 4.Nf3 Bc5 5.e3 Nc6 6.Be2 Ngxe5 7.Nxe5 Nxe5 8.Nc3 0-0 9.0-0 Re8 10.Kh1 a5 11.f4 Nc6 12.Bd3 d6 13.Qh5 h6 14.Rf3 Nb4 15.Be4 c6 16.Rg3 Qf6 17.Bd2 Na6 18.a3 Kf8 19.Bd3 Ba7 20.Ne2 Nc5 21.Bc3 Qxc3 22.Nxc3 Nxd3 23.Rf1 Bxe3 24.Qe2 Nxf4 25.Qd1 1-0

I decided that if White is going to start doing the attacking on the kingside, then this opening isn't nearly as much fun for Black as it used to be. Pity...

Hi,
does anybody know how Black can improve on Lalic-Mukic, which is given by NCO as best against the Budapest.
Best wishes
Bernhard
