ahem, Budapest Defense: Rubinstein Variation, 4...Nc6 5.Nf3 Bb4+ 6.Nbd2 Qe7

That's actually not the name of this trap. It is what chess.com opening explorer will say, but that is only the name of the variation, not the trap.

This is a trap that you may not have seen. However, Black can win one or more pawns for the exchange and white has a weakened kingside. This trap is more of a sacrifice for Black than a concrete combination that gives a winning advantage for White.

I remember this trap because ive fallen for it half a dozen times
