I started playing this gambit when the videos first came out, and I'm still using it now. I keep referring back to these vids on a regular basis. Funny, as much as I play d4 as white, no one ever plays the BG against me.
simons videos are the best
Can you please do ALL the videos for chess.com, Simon?
Simon delivers the goodies. A wonderful gambit explained simple and straight forward. Once again Chess.com found a trooper !!
Love your videos, have found you earlier on youtube!
Simon's just a good maker of videos. Very organized and straight to the point.
Silkiest voice on Chess.com? He has my vote!
I totally enjoyed that series, excellent stuff Simon!
I am so stoked over this series! Introduced it to a friend of mine at the club and we've been playing it a lot lately!
thanks will try this out
Great videos on the Budapest!
I played it years ago, and now I am seriously considering to give it another shot.
That was a lot of fun, wasn't it? Hope to see more of your work here in the near future. Thanks.
Wonderful! I think Simon's contributions are a great and fresh addition to the chess.com video lessons library...
by GM Simon Williams
GM Williams shows the first game her ever played against the Budapest Gambit, some 10 years ago. He played the somewhat offbeat e4 and got advanced pawns and better development in return for his fractured structure. Despite demolishing Black, the Ginger GM remains rosy-cheeked about the opening. Watch and you'll also see who that annoying boy was watching the game!
