The Good Old Days Gee you're stretching even us old guys memories, you're going back to when Chess Clubs were full of pipe tobacco smoke!
You can, of course, only play the evans if black allows it. Nowdays it's more likely that 3....Nf6 is played instead of 3......Bc5.
Good luck in your search.

Evans Gambit... One of my favorite games was the Evans Gambit played by Bobby Fischer... The game was played in 1963, Fischer vs Fine, in New York City, at the Manhattan Chess Club... Fine resigned after the 17th move due to the fact that Fischer had mate three different ways...

Hey brobishkin If you can find notation for that game easily, can you please post it? I would enjoy going over the game. If it is a hassle to get it though, don't worry about it, I'll try finding it myself. I don't want to put you through any trouble or anything, just if you have it, please post it.

I used to play it alot and still like it, but my preference is to push that bishop at move three one more square!!!

Evans gambit .. I've only played 6 games (TT Tournament)
I was 1-5 , but really enjoyed the Tournament and learning a little something new.
After the Tournament I tried it (Evans) in a few open games. It's almost impossible to get the opponet to coopperate in the beginning, unless I asked in advance for an Evans game.
I still look for the oppertunity to play it if it comes natural in the opening of my games.

ps.. IMHO the TT Tournaments are the best thing going at GK. It's really fun to try something different once in awhile.

I like it... ... but, in fact, you can't play it, because nearly nobody plays 1. ... e5 and if then 3. .. Nf6 is played. That's the problem.
atrifix 19 ( +1 | -1 )
Actually 1... e5 is quite common, and 3... Bc5/3... Nf6 are about equal in usage. Kasparov played two fairly recent Evans Gambits (at the same tournament?) and won both convincingly. Kasparov-Anand was quite impressive.
gutschi 24 ( +1 | -1 )
Well... ... if I play a tourney, my opponents always play c5. What do I do wrong? Perhaps I need a moustache to look more aggressive... :)

Well, year, the Anand - game, with the strong new moves 7. Be2 and then 8. Qxd4, is quite interesting.
atrifix 9 ( +1 | -1 )
1... c5 is by far the most common response, but 1... e5 is still second in popularity, I believe. (Something around 45%-25%).

instant chess dot com At that site, as White I get the opportunity
to play 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5
very frequently. Try it there.

I prefer 4. c3, though to 4. b4.

jeffz_2002 20 ( +1 | -1 )
No Fischer-Fine analysis, but a neat viewer

(couldn't find analysis with a Google search)

Fischer - Fine It is game #44 in Fischers book "My 60 Memorable Games"
brobishkin 28 ( +1 | -1 )
Fischer - Fine... The point I like to make about the game is the fact that the material aspect of the game had nothing to do with the final result... Fine had more material and points... But Fischer had made the sacrafices for positional plusses... It's one of Fischer's better works of art... Truely a fav of mine...

Evans Gambit A good site for the Evans Gambit is
This gambit is a favorit of mine in blitz games. A few days ago I won a game with it after about 17 moves. But it is true most people avoid it, or just don't know that it exists. Lasker's defense is supposed to have killed this gambit (his famous win against Chigorin), but the Gambit was not refuted!

what are you left with if black takes the pawn and then wont go through with the rest of the gambit?
tulkos 24 ( +1 | -1 )
? there is no way he can not go through with the gambit. after b4, he can either except or decline the gambit. If he excepts it and taikes with his bishop, white plays c3, attacking the bishop and forcing him to move it back, and after that the attack follows.
lorddreyfuss 27 ( +1 | -1 )
Evans is a good surprise weapon, but... 4...Be7 is a good and positionally sound move. After this, it is very difficult to prove that you have enough for the pawn. I have played ony 1 OTB game of Evans, faced 4...Ba5 and won quickly (by push d5 and then Qa4+), but I won't play it again until I learn a lot more theory.
lorddreyfuss 3 ( +1 | -1 )
Sorry... ... I meant 4...Bb4; 5. c3, Be7 :) and also 5...Ba5, obviously...
tulkos 13 ( +1 | -1 )
How do you know so much if you've only played it once? yes, I think Be7 is the best line for black, but In GM play the stats still say that white has enough in return for the sacrifice.
lorddreyfuss 22 ( +1 | -1 )
Well, I've analysed it some... ... of couse! I didn't like what I've seen in my analysis (also analysed some GM games), but I played it anyway because I knew my opponent... Since I've never played Evans, it was "a good surprise weapon"! ;)
