Fighting for the initiative with the Fajarowicz Gambit

Add to Cart

Have you always been looking for an attacking weapon against 1.d4? Then the Fajarowicz-variation (3…Ne4) in the Budapest Gambit (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5) is certainly for you! The knight move right into the centre perfectly reflects the spirit in which Black has to play this opening. In fact the aim is not particularly the recovery of the sacrificed pawn on e5, but rather the increase in influence on the centre by developing the minor pieces as efficiently as possible. In various lines you’ll see this strategy prevailing, since White’s king often doesn’t have a safe place in which to find shelter from the invading black pieces. After watching the video you will be prepared to employ this aggressive system in your own games.
