    Scaryshadow, the knight won't do much harm on d5 and it could soon enough be kicked out with ...c6, after black has traded of one knight.

    es007 white has Bg5. black will play be7 white will trade the bishops then stick his knight on d5.

    At 4:40 "Nc6 is a mistake here", no Nc6 is'nt a mistake. If white would have played 4.Bf4, black's main line runs 4...Nc6 5.Nf3 and will just be a transposition because white don't have any better move than defending the pawn by simply playing 5.Bf4 and a transposition will occur.

    I really like openings that most opponents probably aren't prepared for. Especially one's like this where just a single innacurate move right out of the gate can mean BIG trouble for them! I've been waiting for a series that focused specifically on The Budapest! So thank you for the vid series on this defense! Laughing

    Hello Simon,

    Can you also throw some light on 4. e6 (this might as well ruin blacks kingside or atleast xchange queens (4...dxe6) and black loses the right to castle. 

    Also if the gambit isnt accepted and the pawn is pushed to 3. d5 gaining more space, what are blacks counter chances?

    Is there anything inherently wrong with 4. Bf4, instead of 4.Nf3? It seems to avoid the drawback you mentioned about the bishop being trapped behind the pawn wall.

    MacrosGambit, the 3. d5 line is actually bad for White.  It surrenders the center early in the game.  After Bc5, f2 can't be protected easily.  Then a simple d6, and we have happy development and a strong center.
