Dec-19-04  Hidden Skillz: ouch..what a blunder by seems to be lost anyway
Apr-07-05  Poisonpawns: 20.Be5+ Nasty move by alekhine
Feb-24-06  twinlark: Or 17...Rxf5 18.Rxf5 Qxf5 19.Rf1 Qxh3 20.Rf8+ Kg7 21.Rf7+ Kh8 22.gxh3 Na6 23.Bh6 Rg8 24.Bg7+ Rxg7 25.Rf8+ Rg8 26.Rxg8 mate.
Sep-12-07  beginner64: So, is the idea that:
20.. dxe5
21. Rxf8+ Kg7
22. Rf7+ Kh6
23. gxh3, and white wins by being an exchange up?

Or, is there a more forceful continuation?

Sep-12-07  GreenCastle: 22.♖g8+! ♔ moves 23.gxh3

There is no good way to meet the threat of Bxc6. Black will be down a whole rook.

May-21-16  CblP: what's wrong with 9...Qf7? after 10.Qxf5 white has an extra pawn, but after exchange on c3 white has weak pawns that are easy to attack. or 9...Qf7 is also weakening the defensive position? (and e.g. 10.Qf3 is also possible)

And is the Budapest gambit acceptable to play for black in general?
