More info

When Grandmaster Viktor Moskalenko started playing the Budapest many years ago, its all-round appeal struck him, and since then he has won many games with it. This book contains quite a few of Moskalenko’s own games, as well as games by other star players from the past and the present. They illustrate perfectly the dynamic character of this gambit as well as its solid strategic foundations.

Moskalenko does not shower you with long computer-generated variations but clearly explains the plans for both White and Black. 

This New Edition is completely reworked and fully updated from the original 2007 publication; it has been extended by 25% and contains new analysis, new games, new ideas and lots of novelties.

What’s new in this edition? In Moskalenko’s own words:

  • all games and introductions have been revisited
  • my new 6 Symbols system, refining and categorizing the comments
  • nearly 50 extra pages
  • 18 games have been replaced by new ‘jewels’
  • updates and, where necessary, expansions in every chapter
  • hundreds of improvements, alternatives and new ideas(my italics, AH)
  • proof that the Fajarowicz Gambit is entirely playable!

As always, Moskalenko is right on the ball, or as the German magazine Rochade Europa said about the first edition: “He doesn’t dish out endless variations but concentrates on the details of the principal and most aggressive plans.”
