    I have played this few times (a long long time ago) and I can say that its playable for black. But white can get small positional advantage if they plays precise.

    I've used it a few times, it's a great opening, and I will continue to use it from time to time - I should really put serious consideration into making it my main defense against 1.d4, but for now I'm testing 1...d6.

    I'm not playing the KID right now, too much theory.

    Yeah, but I already have my hands full with the sicilian.

    Do you play 3..Ng4 or 3..Ne4 if white captures? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budapest_Defense

    In my opinion 3...Ng4 is definetly better than 3...Ne4

    I guess Fritz could do it also if you use any other openings.

    But maybe its because your knowledges of Budapest are worse than in opening which you play usually.

    I love the Budapest and use it as my main defense against 1. d4 in OTB now. It has two main advantages:

    1. Even fairly strong players don't usually know it;

    2. It opens the position early, which is the opposite of what most d4 players want.

    In CC it's not as good; if you follow databases, White gets a bit of a edge in almost all lines. But that's generally true in most responses to d4 anyway.
