A52 - The Budapest Gambit
Compiled by MoonlitKnight
--*--

This opening has rarely been played by the elite the last 50 years, but that does not mean that it is unsound. After it was introduced in 1918, some of the greatest players prior to WWII tried it out. Also check out InspiredByMorphy's game collection.
