Anatomy of a Gambit: Dissecting the Halasz
by Glenn Budzinski
For everyone who plays a gambit, there's always someone else who must play
against it. And, given the plethora of different ways to give up a pawn, there's no
way to avoid having to face those often nasty little proffered gremlins at least
occasionally throughout one's playing career.
However, should one actually wish to experience a good dose either of the glory
or dismay of gambit play (depending on which side of the board one sits on), a
good place to start is blitz, or "five minute", chess where, it has been said, the
gambit is king.
In 25 years of blitz chess, I thought I had seen virtually every possible gambit at
least once, until I ran into 1 e4 e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4, known as the Halasz Gambit,
according to the perpetrator and one of my daily lunchtime companions, Charley
Wernquest. Doing what every loyal fan of Larry Evans was taught to do, I
naturally gobbled White's d-pawn and tenaciously tried to hang onto it with
logical moves such as Bc5, a5 and Nc6, only to fall to blistering White kingside
assaults in two straight games. Clearly, the Halasz looked to be more than just a
spur of the moment gambit and would require a little serious, home study to
neutralize it.
Doing my research, I found that there is almost nothing to find, not only about
the gambit itself, but its namesake, as well. There is little available theory.
Typical is ECO Volume C's recommendation of 1 e4 e5 2 d4 ed4 3 f4 Bc5 4 Nf3
Nc6 5 a3 a5 6 Bd3 Nf6 [6..d6 7 h3 Nf6 8 0-0 0-0, unclear] 7 0-0 d5!, assessed as
unclear. A footnote addressing the opening exists in Watson and Schiller's "The
Big Book of Busts," which offers the equally unenlightening 3..Nc6 4 Nf3 Bc5 5 a3
a5 6 c3 dc3 7 Nc3 Nge7, with the comment that "Black is ahead in development
as well as a pawn richer, Pohl-Augustin, corres. 1992". (The authors fail to
mention that White obtained a good position after 8 Ng5 and eventually won the
game.)
The only true attempt at scholarship is Clyde Nakamura's article in the May-July
1997 issue of "Chess Horizons" magazine, in which he analyzes a few Halasz
games, adding that one of his students "discovered this obscure gambit
independently of any known games or analysis". Similar to my subsequent
experiences, Nakamura also played some test games with the Halasz against
MChess Pro computer software and tried out the opening in several blitz games,
discovering that the "kingside attack is a very natural strategic goal with the
pawn thrust e5 chasing Black's knight away from the f6 square and the bishop at
d3 aiming for the h7 square."
The identity of Halasz, the person presumably after whom the gambit is named,
appears to be even more elusive than the opening. Other than knowing that he
(or she) was a correspondence player in the 1980s, apparently of master
strength and who played the system that bears his name, there is little more that
can be said. Other players named Halasz occasionally appear in games culled
from databases, but it's unclear if they're the same or different persons.
Okay, since no one else appears to have done so to date, let's make a first
attempt at identifying and categorizing a few main lines of the Halasz Gambit.
Based on the 40 or so games that I've been able to locate and the existing
theory (as minimal as it is), let me be so bold as to suggest that there are two
principal lines of play: the ECO line, 1 e4 e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4 Bc5 4 Nf3 Nc6 5
a3 a5 6 Bd3 Nf6 7 0-0, which we'll call Variation "A", and 3...Bb4+, which we'll
call Variation "B".
Looking at our Variation "A", Black reaches a major crossroads at, or near, his
7th move: either he tries 7...d5 or ...d6, or he can place his N on e7 and, again,
continue with either ..d5 or ..d6. (Deserving of little more than the briefest of
mentions is 7..0-0?, which led to immediate disaster in Halasz - Tanin, 1990
corres.: 8 e5 Nd5 9 Bxh7+ Kh8 10 Ng5 g6 11 Qf3 Ne3 12 Bxg6 1-0, because
mate will soon follow.)
So, after 7...d5, White invariably plays for the advanced e-pawn with 8 e5 and
another critical position is reached. Black now has a choice of 8...Ng4 or
8...Ne4. After 8...Ng4, tournament praxis has seen 9 Qe1, 9 Qe2 and 9 Re1.
Buss - Gills, corres. 1993, saw 9 Qe1. After 9...Ne3 10 Rf2 Bf5 11 Bxf5
(Nxd4!?) Nxf5 12 Kh1 0-0 13 Re2 Ne3 14 Qd2 f6 15 exf6 Rxf6!? (An interesting
idea. Certainly, there can't be anything wrong with ...Qxf6) 16 c3 Rxf4 17 cxd4
Rxf3! 18 gxf3 Nc4 19 Qd1 Nxd4 20 Rg2, Black should've tried 20...Nf5, with a
good position. Instead, he opted for 20...Qf6 and later lost.
White fared better after 9 Qe2, when the continuation was 9...Ne3 10 Bxe3 dxe3
11 Nc3 d4 12 Ne4 Ba7 (I've reached similar positions with the B on e7 in several
casual games, but still have not been encouraged by my results with the Black
pieces. One of the problems that Black faces is king placement.) 13 Nfg5 h5
14 h3 Bf5? (Black's only hope was to follow Nakamura's suggestion of Qe7, Bd7
and 0-0-0.) 15 Nxf7! Kxf7 16 Ng5+ Ke8 17 Bxf5 and White went on to win in
Salminen - Lapine, 1994 corres.
9 Re1 led to wild complications after ..0-0 10 Nbd2 Ne3 11 Qe2 Nxc2!?
12 Bxh7+ Kxh7 13 Qd3+ (13 Ng5+ Kh6!) g6 14 Qxc2 Bb6 15 Kh1 Bf5 16 Qd1
Kg7 17 Ng5 Qd7 18 Ndf3 a4 and Black is better, although White managed to
generate enough play to split the point in Chmiel - Noskowicz, 1992 Corres. Ch,
Poland.
After 7..d5 8 e5, there is also the reply 8..Ne4. Simmelink - Engbersen, 1990
corres., continued 9 Nbd2 Nxd2 10 Bxd2 0-0?! (Castling into the forthcoming
assault does not look advisable. Evidently Black has to try...Ne7 to prevent f5.)
11 f5! (Of course. White already has the advantage.) Ne7 12 f6 (Maybe best is
12 Ng5, leading to a messy position after f6 13 Qh5!? fg5 14 f6 Ng6 [..g6!?,
returning the piece, is worth considering] 15 f7+ Rf7 16 Rf7 Kf7 17 Qh7 Ne5 18
Rf1+ Ke6 19 Qg7 Nd3 20 cd3.) However, Black managed to hang on for a 24-
move draw.
The other Black option is 7...d6. But, after 8 Qe1 (If 8 e5, then Black can play
Nd5 with Ne3 and Bg4 to follow, according to Nakamura. Nonetheless, after
8 e5 Nd5 9 Qe1 Ne3 10 Bxe3 dxe3 11 Kh1, White's attacking chances should
not be minimized.) 0-0 9 h3 Bd7 10 e5 Re8 11 Qg3 Nh5 12 Qh2 g6 13 g4 Ng7
14 Nbd2 f5 15 exf6 Qxf6 16 Ne4 Qf8 17 Qg3 Re7 18 Qh4 (A typical Halasz
position: Black has an extra pawn, but he is pinned down by a White attack.) Ne8
19 f5! White's advantage is obvious and he went on to win in 26 moves in Blank -
Wothe, 1991 corres.
Black's N can also go to e7 rather than f6. In Halasz - Johansen, corres. 1990,
White go the better of it after 1 e4 e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4 Bc5 4 Nf3 Nc6 5 a3 a5
6 Bd3 Nge7 7 Nbd2 d6 8 0-0 0-0 (8...Ng6 9 Nb3 Bb6 10 f5 Nge5 11 Nxe5 Nxe5
12 Qh5 a4 13 Bg5 Qd7 14 f6 0-0 15 Rf4 Ng6 16 e5 1-0, Latorre - Clemente,
corres. 1992) 9 f5 f6 10 Qe1 Ne5 11 Nxe5 dxe5 12 Nf3 Bd7 13 g4 b5 14 g5
Bd6 15 Qe2 Rb8 16 Nh4 c5 17 b3 Be8 18 gxf6 gxf6 19 Bh6 Rf7 20 Kh1 Kh8
21 Rg1 Ng8 22 Rxg8+ Kxg8 23 Qg4+ Kh8 24 Rg1 1-0
A similar idea, but with a bit of a twist through the omission of a5, led to a good
result for Black in Soto Perez - Marin, Seville 1992: 3...Nc6 4 Nf3 Bc5 5 Bd3 d5
6 e5 Nge7 7 a3 Bf5 (After 7..Bg4, an interesting exchange sac was tried in
Denaro - Benassi, corres. 1990 Italy 8.h3 Bxf3 9.Qxf3 a5 10.Nd2 0-0 11.Qh5 g6
12.Qg4 a4 13.Nf3 Qc8 14.Bd2 f6 15.Qxc8 Raxc8 16.0-0-0 fxe5 17.fxe5 Rxf3
18.gxf3 Nxe5 19.Bb5 Nxf3 20.Bxa4 Nxd2 21.Rxd2 c6, but Black succumbed in
32 moves.) 8 b4 Bb6 9 Bb2 a6 10 0-0 Qd7 11 Nbd2 Bxd3 12 cxd3 Nf5,
0-1 in 29.
Given the frequent unevenness of the competition and the effect that such has
had on the resulting play, coupled with the lack of solid master-level tournament
praxis (whether correspondence or over-the-board), means that it is difficult to
provide a meaningful assessment of Variation "A". My own less than conclusive
experiences playing the line mostly from the Black side in casual games tend to
indicate that White probably can maintain enough pressure to offset his pawn
deficit. Black's chief difficulty lies in finding a secure place for his king, especially
after the move ...a5. If one is insistent upon playing this line as Black, perhaps
the way to go is to refrain from ...a5 and proceed as in Soto Perez - Marin or
Denaro - Benassi.
Although our journey to find the truth in the Halasz is only beginning,
Variation "B", 3...Bb4+, might be the toughest nut for White to crack. Despite
White's encouraging results with 4 Nd2, Black's play has often left much to be
desired in the few available examples. In the 4 Bd2 line, even with minimal
praxis, one is tempted to suggest that as long as Black doesn't do anything
downright foolish, the onus may be on White to prove his compensation. But
first, let's explore 4 Nd2.
Looking at the Black carnage that may have bolstered the White reputation here,
one finds two games by the man himself, Halasz. The game Halasz-Menken,
corres. 1990, went 1 e4 e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4 Bb4+ 4 Nd2 Qe7?(Nakamura
questioned this move as taking away a good square for Black's knight.
Additionally, I would add that it unnecessarily wastes a valuable tempo that
Black could use to get castled.) 5 Bd3 d5 6 e5 c5 7a3 Ba5 8 b4!? cxb4 9 axb4
Bxb4 (Although Black is 2 pawns up, the second one is only temporary.) 10 Nf3
Nc6 11 0-0 Nh6 12 Nb3 Bc3? (It is mandatory that the bishop remain on the
a3-f8 diagonal.) 13 Ba3 Qd7? (With his king caught in the middle of the board,
time is already running out on Black.) 14 Rb1 a6 15 h3 b6 16 Rf2 Qd8 17 g4 b5
18 Bc5 g6 19 f5 gxf5 20 Qc1 Ng8 21 gxf5 Nge7 22 Qh6 Qc7 23 Bd6 Qd8 24 Rg2
Bxf5 25 Qg7 Kd7 26 Nc5+ Kc8 27 Bxf5+ Nxf5 28 Qxf7 Nxd6 29 exd6 Ra7 30
Qe6+ Kb8 31 Qxd5 Nb4 32 Rxb4 Bxb4 33 Nxd4 1-0
Similarly, in Halasz-Nikolic, corres. 1990, Black's king was, again, all dressed
up but had no place to go: 1 e4 e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4 Bb4+ 4 Nd2 Nc6?! (This does
not look to be correct due to the following maneuver.) 5 a3 Bc5 6 b4 Bb6 7 Ngf3
d6 8 Bd3 Nf6 9 0-0 a6 10 e5 dxe5 11 fxe5 Nd5 12 Nc4 Bg4 13 Qe1 Qd7 14 Ng5
Be6 15 Nxb6 Nxb6 16 Rxf7! (Very nice but predictable, given the state of the
Black monarch.) Bxf7 17 e6 Qd5 18 exf7+ Kd7 19 Be4 Qd6 20 Bf5+ Kd8 21 Bf4
Qd5 22 Be6 Qb5 23 Nxh7 1-0. Black had taken enough punishment.
Things are not as difficult for Black as they might first appear, however. By
following Gimeno-Felez, 1993 Ibercaja Open, and entering into a position that
resembles a Falkbeer Countergambit (ECO variation C-31), Black seems to be
able to emerge relatively unscathed, with a pawn in his pocket. Thus, after 1 e4
e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4 d5 4 e5 Bb4+ 5 Nd2 Ne7 6 Nf3 Nf5 7 Bd3 c5 8 a3 Ne3 9
Qe2, I would propose that Black try 9...Qa5, rather than Felez' ...c4. After
9...Qa5, a plausible continuation is 10 Rb1 c4 11 Nxd4 cxd3 12 cxd3 (12 Qxe3
dxc2 13 Nxc2 Bc5 14 Qg3 15 b4 Qa4 16 Qb3 Qxb3 17 Nxb3 Bb6 =) 12...Nf5 13 axb4
Qxb4 14 Nc2 Qxf4 15 Nf3 Qg4 16 0-0 0-0 and Black has an extra pawn to
compensate for his slight underdevelopment. Now, after 17 b4, there are at
least two options, 17...Be6 or 17...a6. Given the lack of available examples of
this position, I tried both moves against MChess Pro and achieved two draws.
(See games below.) Of course, these games can hardly be considered definitive
tests of the line (especially since they were played at the quick time control of
Game/30 minutes). They also beg the question of how good of a result this is for
Black, if the best he can do is draw while a pawn ahead. In any event, while the
value of these games can be debated, I felt that including even two casual
contests was better than not including any games at all.
Despite the dearth of existing examples, I posit that 4 Bd2 is not the way for
White to proceed. As long as Black avoids Halasz-Gritschuk, corres. 1988,
1 e4 e5 2 d4 exd4 3 f4 Nc6 4 Nf3 Bb4+ 5 Bd2 Qe7 6 Bd3 Nf6 7 0-0 0-0 8 e5 Nd5
9 Bxh7+ Kxh7 10 Ng5+ Kh6 11 Qg4 1-0, his extra pawn should be the telling
factor. In fact, the position looks so straight forward for Black, that one of the
better plans was seen in the very first appearance of the opening, way back in
1861 - over a century before the Halasz became known by its present name.
Thus, Black can do well by following Pindar-Kipping, Manchester 1861, for the
first seven moves: 4 Bd2 Qe7 (This must be correct here.) 5 Bd3 d5 6 e5 Nh6
7 Nf3 Bxd2 8 Nbxd2 (It's time to turn the clocks ahead to 1998 and deviate from
Pindar's 8 Qxd2, which is clearly inferior to 8 Nbxd2, recommended by
Nakamura as an obvious improvement. From here on, I offer my own analysis.)
c5 9 0-0 Nf5 10 Re1 Ne3 (Highlighting White's missing dark-squared bishop.)
11 Qb1 (11 Qe2 leads to ...0-0 12 c3 dxc3 13 bxc3 Nf5 and White has nothing
for the pawn.) Nc6 12 c3 dxc3 13 bxc3 Ng4 14 Bc2 (White is subjected to a
powerful attack after the tempting 14 h3: c4! 15 Bxh7 Qc5+ 16 Kh1 Nf2+ 17 Kh2
Nxh3! 18 gxh3 Qf2+ 20 Kh1 Bxh3. Black is winning.) g6 15 h3 Nh6 16 Qb3 Be6
17 Qb5 0-0 18 Rab1 Rab8 19 Nb3 Rfc8 20 Ng5 (If 20 Qxc5, then Qxc5 21 Nxc5
Nxe5! wins back the pawn.) b6 21 g4 c5 22 Nbd2 Qa3 23 Nxe6 fxe6 24 Qb2
Qc5+ 25 Kg2 Rf8 26 Rf1 Rf7 27 Qb5 Qxb5 28 Rxb5 Rbf8, when Black is about
to garner a second pawn.
Similar to other lesser known gambits, about all that can be stated with certainty
about the Halasz at the present time is that more theory and practice is required.
Of course, given its affinity to the King's Gambit and Falkbeer Countergambit,
the opening should appeal to tactical players who excel at unbalanced, open
positions.
My goal in writing this article was to make a first attempt at identifying a few main
lines of the opening through the use of existing games, or by offering my own
ideas in the absence of praxis. At the very least, I hope that I have inspired
some of you to not overlook the fine art of king hunting, since it is this theme that
perhaps best typifies the Halasz Gambit. For the King's Gambit player looking to
spring a surprise against a familiar opponent, the Halasz may well be the way to
go. On the other hand, players of Black who regularly respond with 1...e5
against 1 e4 especially need to be cognizant of the Halasz, since the few lines of
published theory may actually favor White, when all is said and done.
A collection of games follows.
