Hello fling, I believe the line discovered here ( thread is called New Budapest book- search in google) only refutes the 7.a3 line. As white then has wasted a tempo to dislodge the bishop we can play Bxd2+ and reach a position between += and =, but the better player will win anyway. The other line with Bd6 remains unrefuted. @admins: Could you merge the two BG threads or make a sub-section?

Sorry, I haven't had a look at the line. I guess I need to learn how to properly search the forum, because I can't...

Great, thanks. I will have a look at that (I have to admit I really dislike the search function).

Dig around here, there was a thread with a convincing line that seemed to put Taylor's recommendation to rest.

I actually started looking at the lines in Squeezing the Gambits a few weeks ago. I also looked some at Taylor's The Budapest Gambit. The lines recommended in Squeezing the Gambits look like they give an edge for White, even though Taylor's recommendation makes sense and might be pretty ok for Black. I haven't read Moskalenko's book, though, but still there seems like nothing particular for Black. Therefore, I was quite surprised to see it played twice in Tata Steel this year! Even more so, two wins for Black against strong opposition, and White seemingly not playing the most critical lines. Has anyone else had a look at this?
