    Empire Chess – Vol 12


    GM Ronen Har-Zvi


    The Evans Gambit is one of the most dangerous chess openings ever invented as white recklessly sacrifices a pawn on move 4 to obtain a lasting initiative with an enduring lead in development. The Evans Gambit arises via the move order 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4!? – as white sacrifices this pawn to distract black’s minor pieces and open lines for instant attacking prospects as black’s king will have a difficult time getting out of the center. The Evans Gambit has been employed by legendary chess players such as Garry Kasparov, Paul Morphy, Adolf Anderssen, Misa Pap, and more – proving the validity of this psychotic gambit at the highest levels of chess! The Evans Gambit remains popular today as top chess computer software has been unable to refute this wild gambit because the opening and middlegame positions that occur are downright insane! If you are considering playing the Evans Gambit, you must understand the basic principles behind this complicated system – black will win material very early in the opening and he will be able to hold this extra material, however white will definitely obtain sufficient compensation in the form of very rapid development and a lasting attack in the center and kingside.

But there is an exciting alternative to the main lines - the From Gambit! With l...e5 Black makes it clear that he is willing to fight. The lines which arise often involve forced piece sacrifices for both sides, and knowledge of the middlegame ideas is critical.
