after 4.b4

„Here again, I’m not too impressed with the Englishman’s sense of time. This was popular around 1860.“

„After the game my opponent said he wondered why the Evans is so little played at top level. I think it’s because it loses a pawn“.

(Peter Heine Nielsen, NIC 8/2003. S. 47ff.)

"Needless to say, I share the view of Professor George Botterill that this remains a viable opening. I do not see how Morphy, Anderssen, Chigorin, Fischer and Kasparov can all have been wrong."

Short's novelty in this game was 12.Nb5, although 12...d5 seems like a pretty good reply.
