The first known recorded game of the Fajarowicz Gambit (or Fajarowicz-Richter System) was between Herman Steiner and Sammi Fajarowicz (chapter 8, game #) in Wiesbaden, 1928.
The result of the game was a loss for the German Champion, Fajarowicz, though a promising position had been reached. It is worth noting that Fajarowicz died at the age of 32 and the theory progressed through Kurt Richter, a German International Master, who preferred this line to the standard Budapest Gambit.
Over the years the opening has declined in popularity, as the complex and dynamic theory behind the opening has not been studied deeply enough for continuous play by any one Grandmaster. Though, the opening has been employed at the highest level in recent years by Grandmasters more as a surprise defence or attack!
The Initial Position
The opening of the FG begins when the following position arises:
It is worth examining this position to see the relative merits of the position, as we did with the BG.
Firstly, we will look at this from White’s perspective.
Black’s analysis can be done in the same way.
It is early on and much can happen, but it is often useful to take 2 minutes at each step to see the overall plan and make sure that moves you make are both flexible and strategically sound. Connecting moves and ideas such as King Bishop out first to allow, castling, d5, Queen on the open file and Queen Bishop out allow plans to flow naturally.
It is now up to White to decide on whether to attack the Knight or develop naturally (best).
I'm going to leave the Fajarowicz there, whilst I have learnt more about this opening I think, at least at this stage, it is best not to "muddy the waters" with this line.
