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!
