He beat Kramnik with it at Amber this year: Kramnik vs Mamedyarov, 2008

Dec-20-09  Everett: If this is not a win on time, is 38..Qa1 a win?

39.Kg1 gxf2+ <gxh2+ 40.Kxh2 Qxf1 41.Qe5+ MAY allow perpetual, I have not analyzed it completely, but the black Q seems out of play, despite the temporary piece up> 40.Kxf2 Qd4+ 41.Ke1 h3 42.gxh3 Kf6 unpinning the bishop and... I don't know...

It could be a win on time. Rybka 3 on final position:

Dec-20-09  metspride07: the budapest defense is a good suprise opening i think qxf2 is winning for white am i missing something after qe5 then kf7 and i think the checks will run out eventually
Dec-20-09  Jessejames210: does f4 on move 8 a good move or do i miss something?
Dec-21-09  tonsillolith: <Jessejames210: does f4 on move 8 a good move or do i miss something?>

Well perhaps <8. f4 gxf4 9. exf4 Rg7 10. fxe5 Qh4+ 11. g3 Rxg3> and White gets some pressure on the exposed king.

Are there any better variations?
