GM Boris Altermans presents a 4 video series investigating perhaps one of the soundest of the romantic gambits from the 18th century that is still used at top level in the game today - The Evans Gambit with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Bc5 4 b4!?

Captain William Davies Evans was the captain of a sailing packet carrying mail between Milford Haven and Waterford in Great Briton in the 1820s. During one of these crossings the gallant captain suddenly discovered a promising new fourth move for White And so, the Evans Gambit was born coming at the height of the romantic period in the game, the swashbuckling gambit soon took the imagination of the chess world and was adopted by the likes of McDonnell, Labourdonnais, Anderssen, Moprhy, Chigorin and Steinitz.

However, despite never being refuted, the gambit went out of fashion at the turn of the 20th Century only to come back in dramatic style in 1995, when Garry Kasparov rehabilitated this venerable old gambit.

I taught this opening to my son when he was young, and today he still wins points with it! This series starts with the basic concepts, and then covers the main variations and ideas. It culminates in the brilliant win of Kasparov over Anand in which Anand plays 5. ... Be7. This line seemed to take the air out of White's attacking hopes, but Kasparov shows us that's far from the truth! How does one have the time to find these games?? Boris Alterman does it for us and explains it in a way that makes this video a buy! (Posted on October 11, 2013)
