I have played the Budapest Gambit over 100 times and have pulled off lots of traps with this Defense.  Here is a trap I played at chess.com

Pretty tricky if you stray from the main line.  After that, Black has to be careful to maintain drawing chances.  Definitely harder to play as Black than a lot of defenses, and you will not be playing with the initiative, which is probably not what you were hoping for when you played 2...e5.

But I'm gonna do it anyway!  There are big-time practical chances that come from playing an opening that is so rare, but is not garbage.

Maybe I will post the game - we'll see how it goes!  If it's not too embarrassing.

I played the exact game as the first puzzle here on live chess about a week ago, in a 5 minute game, I was still delighted with it though.I played the Budapest in OTB tournaments and enjoy the positions that come from it, however, I agree that playing against a White player who plays natural developing moves can leave Black with some development problems, still, it never gets boring. Thanks for posting the positions.

Blah, I still haven't had the opportunity to play it: my ultra-conservative opponent played 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.d4, and I couldn't come up with a way to transpose.  Then I thought, "I'll try for a Blumenfeld then!" and played 2...e6 so it would look like a Benoni was coming.  He normally plays 3.d5, but played 3.e3 instead!  Bah!  Holmes said he feared a Benko.  We petered out to a draw, but at least that was a sort of victory in context: he is higher-rated, and I needed at least a draw to secure my place in a club function.

Any suggestions as to how I could have transposed into a Buda in 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.d4?

A quick kill using Budapest Gambit !! Caught my opponent off guard in a club match in the lower rated section . His queen went for pawn hunting and missed the mate in 1 move happy.png
