In 1995 Garry Kasparov unleashed a daring new weapon, the Evans Gambit (1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Bc5 4 b4). Although this gambit has always been popular with club and tournament players, it was hardly ever seen in modern top-level chess - until Kasparov used it to beat Anand and Piket in crushing style. Neither of these grandmasters managed to survive even 30 moves! Soon afterwards, the Latvian grandmaster Alexei Shirov used it to defeat Jan Timman in a brilliant 28-move victory. The Evans Gambit was back! In this fully revised edition of their 1976 work, Tim Harding and Bernard Cafferty provide a complete survey of the current state of theory and offer numerous new suggestions for analysis and experimentation. Tim Harding is an expert on correspondence chess, and a well-known journalist who now specializes in chess on the Internet. Bernard Cafferty is chess correspondent of The Sunday Times and was editor of the British Chess Magazine from 1981 to 1992.
