Evans Gambit Question

  • #1

    What is the most dangerous line after 5...bc5?What should white play?

  • #2


    5...Bc5 isn't a good move IMO, just allows white to get another tempo on the bishop from playing a move he wants to anyway.

  • #3

    What I have to do after 7...bb4+ 8.kf1?

  • #4
    You don't need to play that way, you can castle on move 7 e.g.

    If black takes your pawn, you will have a strong attack.

    Strong attack?

  • #6

    Qb3, Nxc3, white has a strong development advantage/initiative.

  • #7

    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4 Bxb4 5. c3 Bc5 6. d4 exd4 7. O-O dxc3.How to reply?

  • #8

    Thank you so much

  • #9

    If you don't want to give black that option, you can castle on move 6?

  • #10

    simply take with your knight

  • #11

    Is that a good choice for tournament?

    White is better, but it's still a game.

    I think 7.cd4 Bb4+ 8.Kf1 is better, the position is extremely dangerous for Black.

  • #13

    What is the main play after 8.kf1?

  • #14

    Any dangerous threats?

  • #15

    After 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4 Bxb4 5. c3 Bc5 6. d4 exd4 7.cxd4 bb4+ 8.kf1,give me a guide.

    Is 7. 0-0 dc3: the good reaction of black? He has two pawns more, but lacks development. Is 7. ... Ne7 not a better answer for black? If white is not fast enough, then will black castle too.

    7. 0-0 Ne7 8. cd4: Bb4 9. Qb3 0-0 10. Bf7:+ Rf7: 11. Ng5 Qf8.

    Don't know if black will hold this, but it looks more logical then capturing another pawn, isn't it?
