<img class="alignright size-full wp-image-9745" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/GM-Ronen-Har-Zvi.png" alt="GM Ronen Har-Zvi" width="293" height="259" />The Evans Gambit is one of the most dangerous chess openings ever invented as white recklessly sacrifices a pawn on move 4 to obtain a lasting initiative with an enduring lead in development. The Evans Gambit arises via the move order 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4!? - as white sacrifices this pawn to distract black's minor pieces and open lines for instant attacking prospects as black's king will have a difficult time getting out of the center. The Evans Gambit has been employed by legendary chess players such as Garry Kasparov, Paul Morphy, Adolf Anderssen, Misa Pap, and more - proving the validity of this psychotic gambit at the highest levels of chess! The Evans Gambit remains popular today as top chess computer software has been unable to refute this wild gambit because the opening and middlegame positions that occur are downright insane! If you are considering playing the Evans Gambit, you must understand the basic principles behind this complicated system - black will win material very early in the opening and he will be able to hold this extra material, however white will definitely obtain sufficient compensation in the form of very rapid development and a lasting attack in the center and kingside. If you are looking for a chess opening for white that will grant you excellent winning chances, dynamic positions, and strong attacking prospects - the Evans Gambit will be a perfect fit for your repertoire!

I haven't had the guts to play

I haven't had the guts to play the Evans Gambit, but after listening this DVD, I might just give it a try the next time an opportunity arises! GM Har-Zvi does a thorough job walking us through the maze of tactical ideas in this 19th century swashbuckling gambit. His explanation of the little-followed 5...Bd6 line could prove valuable if a tricky opponent tries to take you out of the main book lines. Great DVD for club players (like me)!


Overview

Empire Chess – Vol 12

GM Ronen Har-ZviThe Evans Gambit is one of the most dangerous chess openings ever invented as white recklessly sacrifices a pawn on move 4 to obtain a lasting initiative with an enduring lead in development. The Evans Gambit arises via the move order 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4!? – as white sacrifices this pawn to distract black’s minor pieces and open lines for instant attacking prospects as black’s king will have a difficult time getting out of the center. The Evans Gambit has been employed by legendary chess players such as Garry Kasparov, Paul Morphy, Adolf Anderssen, Misa Pap, and more – proving the validity of this psychotic gambit at the highest levels of chess! The Evans Gambit remains popular today as top chess computer software has been unable to refute this wild gambit because the opening and middlegame positions that occur are downright insane! If you are considering playing the Evans Gambit, you must understand the basic principles behind this complicated system – black will win material very early in the opening and he will be able to hold this extra material, however white will definitely obtain sufficient compensation in the form of very rapid development and a lasting attack in the center and kingside. If you are looking for a chess opening for white that will grant you excellent winning chances, dynamic positions, and strong attacking prospects – the Evans Gambit will be a perfect fit for your repertoire!

¨Decimate Black with the Evans Gambit¨ is a chess DVD targeted at players of intermediate and advanced level, however the beginner player will also learn quite a lot from GM Ronen Har-Zvi’s impeccably clear style of presentation. Grandmaster Har-Zvi is an extremely effective chess teacher with over 15 years of chess training experience. This DVD presents over 4.5 hours of elite grandmaster content and is guaranteed to provide viewers not only with deep knowledge of the common tactics and attacking patterns for white in the Evans Gambit, viewers will also learn about the positional fundamentals behind the moves! GM Ronen Har-Zvi does a fantastic job of demonstrating the reasons behind the moves in this complicated gambit system, ensuring that viewers will remain prepared and knowledgeable even if their opponents deviate from the main book lines. This chess DVD will provide you with greater positional and tactical understanding, presented from an exceptionally talented Grandmaster with a profound understanding of chess and how to teach it!
