Captain Evans !! Nice lesson Jacek !!
In the Qf6 variation, Black would be much better off playing the 11...d5, rather than what you said was a forced 11...Ng4. Would you agree??
I love this gambit thanks for the video.
the evan's gambit is the scotch gambit's brother
I really learned a lot from this because I play the evans as white and never really had the chance to expirament the lines that it can lead to.
thanks IM Stopa
This is an excellent chess lesson! I will immediately check out the next installment on the Evans Gambit, with which I will now be experimenting.
IM Stopa is a superb teacher!
I just watched this lesson on my iPad, for free inside the Chess.com app! Life is good.
what if black takes night instead ofpawn
really great..I am highly impressed by this video..
This opening really caught my attention after witnessing some of the most incredible combonations I've ever seen in an opening. I have to learn this opening.
Awesome video. Thanks.
Really nice video in terms of technical and instructional quality! Evans gambit is a nice opening for a club player like me, as with 1.e4 one should be ready for tactical battles anyway. It's also a very straightforward opening: sacrificing for iniative and better development.
great video. some brilliant lines with the old evan's gambit
thanks guys for all the feedback!
AnlamK, yes that's a good point, black can play that. but here also, after 10...Nf6 11.e5 Ne4 12.Qc2 Nc5 13.Bg5, the position is in white's favor due to the delay in black's pieces development.
Wow! Best video I've ever seen on chess.com. This guy needs to make more!
im looking for a main attack as white i may start using evans gambit
Really great video! Please, more videos on the Evans Gambit, and more videos by IM Jacek Stopa.
Nice video. Thanks IM Jacek! I look forward to more of these type of videos .
Wow. This video will help me murk my opponents. I would never think to sacrifice the pawn and then do queen-c3. Beauty.

Calling all gambit players! Well, at least all Evans Gambit players... Today International Master Jacek Stopa makes his Chess.com debut by delving into the complex Evans Gambit, specifically positions that arise after the popular 5...Ba5 and eventual defensive maneuver to b6. Pay close attention as Jacek highlights not only the incredibly beautiful and creative tactics white achieves in the Evans, but also the overall coordination and patterns of white's attack.
