Good stuff Jacek !
Pace was GREAT !!!
what about Qf6?
excellent !!! continue.
great! i actually used it and won! i remember stuff....
Ah man! The demo video has a cliff hanger. lol. It's still a good vidoe.
Very fine video. Look forward to your next videos on any theme. Thank you.
I think you just changed me from a 1.Nf3 to a 1.e4 player. Excellent job, i look forward to playing this opening.
To split hair: inventor of this opening was not called Evan but Evans, and he was a captain in the navy. So Evans' instead of Evan's would be correct.
Excellent instruction. Thank you.
Ok Nice Video!I like it.
I really liked this video. I've played this so many times, with bad results, because my queen was attacked by the fork of the knight. I'm sure I'll eventually play it again, but hopefully I can remember what NOT to do. THanks for the video! I'll also mention, the way he delivered the lecture was also pleasing. I've been at another chess site for years, and I find this video very refreshing. (basics)
Another wonderful video. You guys have just been hitting them out of the ballpark lately!
to me a lot of the pawn structures and some possible themes stemming from these lines seemed reminiscent of the gruenfeld, or strange semi-gruenfelds gone awry.
Nice video! Loved it.
by GM Jacek Stopa
International Master Jacek Stopa is back for round 2! Today he continues his dissection of the Evans Gambit, and offers a "boat load" of tactical ideas to take home with you. Tell mom and dad that Uncle Jacek taught you a number of crazy-fun attacking ideas, including: when to sacrifice on f7, followed by Qd5+ forking the King and Bishop; how to expose black's King along the e-file; and when giving up an a1-rook isn't so bad... Enjoy!
