Chess Tactics in The Evans Gambit – GM Marian Petrov
The Evans Gambit is an imaginative gambit invented in the 1820s by Captain Evans (1790-1872) and was for decades White’s most direct attacking line in the Giuoco Piano. It arises after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4!?
Made famous by Anderssen’s ‘Evergreen Game’ back in 1852, this opening gambit has been a weapon of choice for attackers and chess romantics ever since.
White sacrifices his b-pawn and in return gains a ton of activity, a strong center, and very clear devastating attacking plans…
GM Marian Petrov’s course on the essential tactical patterns in the Evans Gambit gives you a complete understanding of typical tactical and strategic patterns for both sides. The Evans Gambit is one of the most aggressive chess openings that you can play with the white pieces, immediately sacrificing a pawn to obtain a dangerous initiative from the early opening. This ultra-aggressive gambit has been employed by legendary Grandmasters such as Garry Kasparov, Paul Morphy, Hikaru Nakamura, Adolf Anderssen, Misa Pap, and more – proving that it is indeed a reliable opening weapon with the white pieces.
