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.

Any time a top grandmaster plays ...g5 on move four, that's a game worth watching (it moves to g4 soon after!). Thank you GM Jobava! Our author GM Simon Williams brings his British brogue back to show off his man-crush on Baadur's Budapest. Too bad it's not the b-pawn that plays the hero - for that, Williams says you'll have to find Freddy. Watch and see what this madness is all about! | Watch video
