|Sep-01-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: The year is certainly incorrect here. I guess it was played in 1842. |
|Mar-15-04|| ||mtalfan104: 13. exf6!! I love it! |
|Jun-30-08|| ||Sem: Chosen by Fischer as one of the best of all times.|
|Sep-11-13|| ||JoergWalter: <Sem> do you have a reference or maybe the complete list of Fischer's "best of all times"?|
|Sep-11-13|| ||thomastonk: <JoergWalter> Do you think of this here: http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...?|
|Sep-11-13|| ||JoergWalter: <thomastonk> thanks for that. I was thinking that it was chosen by Fischer as one of the best [games] of all times.
I have never come across such a list.|
|Sep-12-13|| ||scormus: <Sem 13 exf6!!> yes, a fabulous move. It must have been quite a shock. B cannot avoid dropping a piece. I think it calls for a new sign|
<13 exf6 :O>
|Nov-24-13|| ||sneaky pete: Keene (Staunton biography) and Cafferty and Harding (Play the Evans Gambit) questionmark 9... Nf6 and 10... dxe5, but leave us guessing about the value of 12... Na5. |
Fortunately there's Mr. Staunton, who writes: "This we take to be his best resource. If, instead of attacking the Queen, he had played away his KN, the attack would have been overpowering."
That seems conclusive, coming from "the most profound opening analyst of all time". Still, suppose black had been foolish enough to play 12... Ng4

How does it go, Howie Zowie? I've studied the position after 13.h3 Na5 and after 13.e6 fxe6, but couldn't find anything satisfactory, let alone overpowering, for white.

why lose time for harassing this poor little horse at g4, which I guess did never bite you?
Why not rather let your own horse on b1 which is just boring at home and doing nothing, run a bit outside, starting from 13.Nbd2 for example?
Maybe the result at last would be better for White...
In general, I have the feeling that before Lasker "came", the Evans gambit was a terrible weapon in the hands of his knowers.
Here for instance, the Variation is called "slow", but the result is very fast!!
