    Will watch other lines you present first before adopting it, but I must say, as a 1.d4 1. ...c6 (wedge pattern openings), I did well and enjoyed using the King's Gambit in a tourney yesterday. My amateur opponents did not offer the lines Simon mentioned but his mantra of, "In the gambit style...." and "Sacrifice to...." kept ringing in my head and I found some very effective ones. The games were much more interesting! Thanks Simon! I won both games.

    I really like openings that most opponents probably aren't prepared for. Especially one's like this where just a single innacurate move right out of the gate can mean BIG trouble for them! I've been waiting for a series that focused specifically on The Budapest! So thank you for the vid series on this defense! Laughing

    Hello Simon,

    Can you also throw some light on 4. e6 (this might as well ruin blacks kingside or atleast xchange queens (4...dxe6) and black loses the right to castle. 

    Also if the gambit isnt accepted and the pawn is pushed to 3. d5 gaining more space, what are blacks counter chances?

    Fantastic video and I look forward to the next parts. Hope you will continue to be a regular here and in the Bulliten! Your Budapest article in Feb helped tip me over the edge to subscribe.

    Is there anything inherently wrong with 4. Bf4, instead of 4.Nf3? It seems to avoid the drawback you mentioned about the bishop being trapped behind the pawn wall.

    MacrosGambit, the 3. d5 line is actually bad for White.  It surrenders the center early in the game.  After Bc5, f2 can't be protected easily.  Then a simple d6, and we have happy development and a strong center.

    I have been trying this in blitz since seeing your video. Problem is most opponents actually play 3 D5, and black's position because horrid after that. The chess.com database also had black doing very badly in that line

    Great video Simon - I myself prefer tactical openings/positions to positional ones, so this is right up my alley, and I may make this my choice opening against 1.d4. Thank you for putting in the time and effort into this series, and I wholeheartedly look forward to your next installment of this opening.

    Great first video! Really enjoyed your teaching style and I always love when authors recommend lines rather than saying "this is one side line, this is another...etc". 

    I have always played the Kings Indian or Nimzo, however I much prefer an attacking style as I play the Evan's Gambit and Fried Liver as white. I will definitely switch to the Budapest now.

    Can't wait for the other videos on this opening.

    Cheers.

    Well, that settles it: thanks to the Budapest Gambit, white is out of business!
