  nasmichael: What started out as strong counterplay by black turned into a queenhunt, and some minor retractions by black and a possibly unnecessary castling let white back into the game. The tactic set up by black would have been a nice discovered attack otherwise. Does anyone know of a game similar to this that produced a more desired result for black?
Jul-09-08  Everett: When was black better in this game? White was attacking black's K-side most of the time.
Jul-09-08  paul1959: Probably not a great idea to play this line against Spassky.
Jul-25-08  Buddy Revell: According to Viktor Moskalenko, in the book "The Fabulous Budapest Gambit", 2007, "(...) The right defence was the blockade idea 13...g6! 14.Qh6 f5 and White has difficulties to develop his initiative on the kingside."
May-23-10  elohah: Move 8 (Black's) the Ghost.

There is a spector haunting the Budapest...
