The Budapest Gambit is especially popular in club chess. That White should objectively get the better game seems clear. But by what means? If White gets involved in the main variations after 4.Bf4 or 4.Nf3, there is a large amount of theory to deal with. In his video Ivan Sokolov recommends the alternative 4.e3, followed by 4...Nxe5 5.f4! – an idea recently brought to his attention by his friend, Ivan Salgado.
