    2000 - over, or below zero?

    Whoever is willing to take the white pieces after 1.d4 Nf6 2.g4 (?) Nxg4 3.e4 d6 4.Be2 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 (variant from #45 which is not mentioned) is very courageous. If White trades pawns and queens, his development advantage consists of having played Bf1-Be2 and g2-out of the board at the cost of a pawn, hardly impressive compensation. If 6.d5 White loses any central initiative he may have had. Otherwise Black trades himself on d4 and plays ...Nc6 etc. with an easy development.

    I would be much more afraid of meeting the Budapest than this "gambit".

     

    I mean, it's less awful than it seems, but there is still a good margin before being even remotely playable at 2000+ level, long games.

    What about in GWG if 3. f3 and then black plays this? Drunken Knight Countergambit: 3.-e5!?4.fxg4 Dh4+ 5.Kd2 exd4 6.Rf3 Dxg4 7.Tg1 De4 8.Ke1 Rc6 9.c3
