Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Fajarowicz Trap
The Budapest Gambit is a popular opening among both amateurs and top players because it contains a variety of traps.
In today’s sneaky trap, black sacrifices two minor pieces in order to win the white queen.
At the early 1920s, German chess players Sammi Fajarowicz and Kurt Richter showed for the first time interest to the possibility of move 3…Ne4. During the initial period of this system, Black achieved quick tactical wins due to the many tricks.
It is a good opening to play as Black against not well-prepared players.
