Incl. 7% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

The Budapest Gambit is an ambitious and adventurous opening for Black, who offers a pawn as early as the second move in return for active and rapid development. It has always been a particular favourite at club level, where it still provides a surprise weapon, but it has also been utilized with success by top-class Grandmasters. In this book Timothy Taylor offers an in-depth study of the Budapest Gambit and its many variations. Using illustrative games, Taylor presents up-to-date analysis of the theory, makes recommendations on the best options for Black and White, and covers the typical plans for both sides. This book provides everything you need to know about this fascinating opening.

  • Covers both the main lines and tricky deviations
  • Highlights crucial tactical and positional ideas
  • Packed with original analysis

International Master Timothy Taylor is an experienced tournament player who has enjoyed several notable successes, including winning the US Open. He is also a renowned chess writer; one of his previous books, How to Defeat the Smith-Morra Gambit , became a US Chess Federation bestseller, while his first book for Everyman Chess, Bird's Opening , provoked much positive interest.
