CHESS BOOKS! (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4) Revisited
THE GREAT EVANS GAMBIT DEBATE
A very consise yet efficient reference for Evans Gambit lovers (as black and white)
My Price: Only 40.00!!
The Evans Gambit 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4 is no doubt, one of the most entertaining and romantic way to start a game. I used to be one of the Evans Gambit enthusiasts some time ago and I have to confess that, handling the Evans Gambit and making your opponent confused is very synonym. However, sometimes you yourself become confused or just feeling suffocated in order to justify the pawn (or pawns) you had just given up.
The EVANS GAMBIT & 2 KNIGHTS DEFENCE is the reference to complete your preparation as not everybody would answer with 3...Bc5 which would be totally a different story
As usual, I present here, one of my most memorable games (without annotation) employing the Evans Gambit beating a very strong player of Terengganu.
