  ChessHigherCat: In case you're wondering why they didn't try to pun on the name:
May-09-17  Steve.Patzer: NN actually won a game?
May-09-17  beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat> 7. Nd4 Nxc5 8. Nxc6 Nxb7 <9. Nxd8> and, after Black recaptures, White appears to be coming out a piece ahead for no compensation. What am I missing?
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant> Yeah, you're right, I was thinking it was just a trade but black already sacrificed a bishop on move 5 (whoops!)

  mike1: Dlugy's opponent is/was a 12 year old Indian player by the name of Shryan "Sunny" Majumbder according to NIC magazine 1/2016, page 98.

  thegoodanarchist: I see that there has been a delugy of comments for this game.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <Phony Benoni: Cute. The pun bothered me for a minute till I realized it was based on "Budapest", not a typo for "pesky">

I find myself in the mood for pesto.

May-09-17  arnakor: Incredibly enough, one student played this opening with White last month in a serious tournament. Black played 5...Bb4+ though.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: I went to Budapest with Lloyd Stanley Fell. We found that there was a daily paper giving ideas about how to annoy Lloyd Stanley Fell. It is called the <Pester Lloyd>.

So we went to Bucharest, instead.

May-09-17  dutch bass dirt: Did Dlugy actually take the other knight so that the remaining knight could go to a4?
May-09-17 I think White caves a little prematurely. Being a GM he should be able to carry on down a Q for 2 pieces + pawn. Am I missing a winning continuation for Black?
May-09-17  happyjuggler0: Dlugy actually played 9 Qxc6 (with dxc6 opening the d file) instead of Qxc5, and black's last move was actually Na4.


May-09-17  Iwer Sonsch: <happyjuggler0> Indeed. This also explains why White resigned. This has to be corrected.
May-09-17  Moszkowski012273: Dlugy opened his own chess school last year and it's doing quite well.
May-09-17  JohnBoy: <5haman> - it looks like 7.e6 is not even included in your analysis.
May-09-17  Iwer Sonsch: Dlugy actually lost a second game during this Banter Blitz event. That one lasted for 11 minutes, or about 80 moves.
May-09-17  ajile: <thegoodanarchist: I see that there has been a delugy of comments for this game. >

I saw what you did there.

<And after 6...Nc6 7.Nd4 Bb4+ 8.Nc3>

<8...0-0> I hadn't even considered that. But seems like the line with <8...Nxc3> I posted above might not be good enough. At least, your engine probably thinks White's advantage in the final position is more than I thought.

So 7. Nd4 looks like a good find by <RookFile>!
