The Evan’s Gambit (1.e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4!) is truly the opening of the attacking chess Gods.
Made famous by Anderssen’s ‘Evergreen Game’ back in 1852, this opening gambit has been a weapon of choice for attackers and chess romantics ever since.
White sacrifices his b-pawn and in return, gains a ton of activity, a strong center and very clear devastating attacking plans…

This video is a free preview from 80/20 Tactics Multiplier: The Evan’s Gambit which features GM Marian Petrov in 8 hours of action-packed lessons revealing everything you need to create tactical masterpieces in this opening.
In this preview, GM Marian Petrov looks at how play continues when Black doesn’t accept the gambit, and how that doesn’t stop White from continuing in an aggressive fashion.
By the 1980s there were a couple of top players who used the Evans Gambit from time to time – in particular, Jan Timman and John Nunn – but it was really quite a rare opening.
Then suddenly in 1995, in the last tournament game before their World Championship match, Garry Kasparov employed it against Viswanathan Anand. Perhaps he wanted to strike a psychological blow, and he did it successfully.
Predictably, the Evans Gambit experienced quite a revival after this. Top players found promising ways for White to play.
Nowadays, the biggest experts in the Evans Gambit are most probably Hikaru Nakamura, Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu, and Alexander Grischuk, who have successfully played this gambit in blitz and classical games against some of the best players in the world.
