Another thing you also could do, was to start a Minitournament with the opening of Evans Gambit and then invite some players to play this opening.

Green OK after a week off to do the taxes, that actually sounds fun. I will send you a challenge. If you
accept it I will send another.

How serious are you? If you want to learn about the Evans, I suggest a book: "Play the Evans Gambit", Hardnig & Cafferty, Cadogan Chess

It was written in 1997. but is still the best book on Evans IMHO

marinvukusic, can I ask what the book says about 5. ... Bd6 ? (perhaps followed by 6. ... Qe7) It seems to take the sting right out of it.
marinvukusic 55 ( +1 | -1 )
tim_b Sure, it is considered the best of "unusual" defences to Evans.

There are only 2 pages of analysis, since it is a rare move.

White should probably play "main" variation: 6.d4, Qe7; 7.0-0, Nf6; 8.Nbd2, 0-0; 9.Bd3 with some advantage. In any case the move is good enough for Black players that fear White's preparation (no need to learn a lot of theory and White's advantage is small).

I have never seen it played since obviously only White players buy books on the Evans and it does look too dangerous to improvise with 5...Bd6 :)

After 5. ... Bd6 get your Knight from b1 to f5.

Thanks, marinvukusic and heinzkat, I'll remember those tips.

Heinzkat, I'm a little unsure how to manoeuvre the b1 knight to f5? Have you got a game example, please?

Bent Larsen use to play 5.... Bd6 against the Evans Gambit, it should be possible to look up some games at the net.

Evans Gambit used to be my fav opening for White, if you care to look into my past games, there are several games on it in there.

That opening lost its popularity throughout the years due to effective counterplay until one day when Kasparov used it to beat Anand (I think, he discovered a new line?).

Look up Paul Morphy's games for the Evans!
