After Nd4, then Qa4+ picking up a bishop
Thank you for whole series ! Maybe some other gambit as well ? ;)
I don't think Qe7 at 5:00 is really all that bad as you say, because if white goes d5 like you suggest black doesn't have to play the Knight back to d8 as you say "forced", but instead play 8...Nd4!
What about the Evans Gambit Declined?
I hope IM Stopa is planning to do more series!
the gambit would have been more interesting if white would have advanced its center pawn to pressure blacks knight....before choosing to castle or advance the queen. the knight would have been forced back to cover king but would have exposed black queen vulnerability.
on 1:39 after dc5 dc5 why not just trade queens and either win the new c5 pawn or leave him with awkward king position in the middle which also leaves f7 pawn hangin. Seems to me like white would get an advantage, please enlighten me if im wrong.
nice videos btw keep em comin! greets
as a fan of gambits, and especially countering them I definately like your ideas here. the Evans G isn't in my repertoire I don't know it properly at all but along with the Benoni I think I may take time to learn this. good video :)
Thank you - that was a very informative analysis. I really enjoyed this video!
Thanks, I enjoyed the variations and your evaluation of them.
Most instructive, thank you. When a titled player is honest enough to show his own inaccuracies it gives hope to all of us here in downtown patzerville.
Great video. thanks.
by IM Jacek Stopa
International Master Jacek Stopa brings his video series on the Evan's Gambit to a close this weekend by offering his best advice on how black should approach the opening stage. In this example game against IM Mulyar, Jacek finds himself quickly on the worse side of the position after the surprisingly solid 6...d6 move.
