The evan's gambit is really aggressive opening that gambit a pawn to get quick development.
So tell me what you like about this opening, what you hate about it, main lines, counters, and games you've seen.
Sorry typo it is called the evans gambit
I once had a guy named Evans play it against me in a USCF game (seriously).
You are certainly a gambit kind of guy aren't you my dude, lol. I have seen several vids of this opening on the net, but have never tried it myself.
were you talking to me because yes I'm very aggressive and I like gambits but I actually don't play the evan's gambit. I just look up openings on youtube and then post forums of them.
Between the Budapest thread and the Evans thread, yes I figured you were a gambit kind of player, lol. It's actually quite a good service you are doing to the forum posting these openings so people can discuss them and trade ideas about them. Since I am new to this forum, I was just wondering if you have already covered the Scandinavian Qd6 variation/opening. It's something that facinates me at the moment
actually the evans gambit is already posted on alot on this site:) if you use the search function you will find alot of threads and good information on it. because of that, often its a waste of time creating threads like this because many people will not use to much energy answering questions that are already answered unless you have some specific questions about the line. there is also a nice videoserie on the evans gambit on this page but i forgot the authors name
no I haven't done the scandinavian defense I can do it if you want.
its better to use the search function and search for scandinavian Qd6. you will find more than enough
I would really appreciate it if you could do the Scandinavian in the future when you have time. I have been experimenting with a lot of openings as Black, and I finally decided on the Center Counter, and I'd love to hear what the more experienced players here have to say about it. You da' man, lol.
The Evans is a sound gambit, and as such it's not very popular to the "gambiteers".
They'd rather play all sorts of ultra-speculative, losing crap than a sound opening, because soundness "is not fun".
Actually by avoiding your theory and using my theory, I'm not using theory!
Evans & Cochrane! Choices of the connoisseur.. :)
The Evans gambit is a very good opening choice just like the Smith-Morra gambit. Search for the games of Morphy and you will find plenty of inspiration! I would play it...
Well, considering the position I got the last time I faced the Evans (doing exactly that Be7/Na5 thing), I'd say that the opening looks pretty sound to me.
this is the main line of the evan's gambit that I play.
5...Bc5 isn't the brightest move on planet earth. 5...Ba5 or 5...Be7 are much better, and even 5...Bd6 has a couple of points.
Well, maybe theoretically.
Why is Caro-Kann so popular?
