Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Budapest Trap

The Budapest Gambit is a surprise weapon for fighting against the Queen Gambit.

The usual sequence of moves is: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5.

In today’s trap, White alters the order and plays 2.Nd2, which allows Black to set a trap with a deadly end.

As you will probably argue, White can avoid this trap with accurate play. But even then, Black has different options to keep the pressure on the black e5-pawn.
