The Fajarowicz variation in the Budapest Gambit follows the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 Ne4. The Fajarowicz variation is said to have its origins in the chess circles from Leipzig, with the first important game being H.Steiner vs Fajarowicz at the 1928 Wiesbaden tournament. In this variation, Black makes no immediate effort to regain the gambit pawn, preferring to concentrate on active piece play and tactical tricks.

The move 4.Nf3 develops a piece and covers the sensitive d2-square. After 4…Bb4+ 5.Nbd2 Nc6 6.a3 Black can easily get confused by the move-order. The move 4.a3 allows White to avoid the annoying bishop check on b4, the also annoying knight jump to b4, and prepares Qc2 to undermine Black’s knight.

In this video lesson, the RCA Academy Manager Angelos Kesaris will present to you some interesting games from this opening variation. He will also explain the general ideas for Black and some of the brilliant traps in this variation.
