  Sneaky: 13. ...dxc4? 14. Qg7 Rf8 15. Nxh7 is winning for White.

But Lyod's 13. ...Be6! seems to hold the Black camp--barely. In problemist lingo, the pin on the e-file becomes a "half pin."

Loyd was a strong player, but I am glad he devoted himself to chess problems, and not so much to over the board play. That is where his real genius shone.

Sep-02-06  AbhinavAsthana: There are so many sacrifices and exchanges in evans gambit. This opening is a good example of an open game but I wonder why it is not played nowadays. Is this opening weaker than others?
