The Hungarian Defense usually leads to solid positions for Black, and it has been played by some grandmasters with strong defensive-positional styles including Reshevsky and Hort, and former World Champions Petrosian and Smyslov."|
This is the namesake game I suppose. Does anyone on the site play it?
|Dec-23-06|| ||Chessical: It can also be played with aggressive intent: A Rakin vs T Yakhiaev, 1989|
|Sep-16-08|| ||Katu: I usually play 3. ...Be7 against 3. Bc4.|
|Sep-16-08|| ||shr0pshire: For a team game, Paris made a lot of relatively easy mistakes.|
|Sep-16-08|| ||Harvestman: The mistakes usually are easy. It's finding the good moves that is the hard bit.|
|Feb-20-15|| ||Oliveira: <diemjay> The Hungarian Defense had been analyzed by Cozio about a century before, but it was obviously this game that established it as part of Black's repertoire against The Giuocco Piano.
Another curiosity is that Jozsef Szen with Johann Jacob Loewenthal as first assistant were leading the Budapest team in this walkover for Black. I wonder who were the French on the other side.|

Great Match by Correspondence,
Between Pesth and Paris.
Begun November 1842: Concluded January, 1846.
In the preceding Number we announced the final termination of this long protracted contest, and the triumphant victory achieved by the Hungarian players. We no proceed to redeem our promise, and to present the games in their completed form, with such brief observations as have occurred to us while playing them through. The match originated in a challenge from the gallant players of Pesth to the members of the Paris Cercle des Echecs, to play two games by correspondence, for a stake of 50l. a side This cartel having been accepted, with all due formality, by the Frenchmen, a committee on each side for conducting the games was speedily organized. That on the part of the Paris comprised the names of St. Amant, Kieseritzki,* Laroche, Devinck, Lecrevain, Sasias, Calvi, Guingret, and Chamouillet; while the parties appointed by Pesth were Szen, Lowenthal, Grimm, Kohlman, and five others. [...]
* M. Kieseritzki is no degree responsible for the untoward issue of the conflict. He resigned his place at the council very early in the game.>

Yeah, pretty weak play by white. The last move must be a typo. There is no reason for black to give away his extra piece.
|Feb-20-15|| ||Fusilli: <Oliveira: <Fusilli: The last move must be a typo>|
Indeed, but the typo is on White's side. According to Chessbase, 39.g5 was played, actually.>
Ah, okay. I'll submit a correction slip.
|Feb-20-15|| ||Oliveira: No need, I've done it already.
The Chess Player's Chronicle also confirmes the typo: https://books.google.com.br/books?i...
