:D Having watched all four videos I feel like I have eaten a substantial and delicious meal. This was quite an achievement to produce a complete analysis of the Evans. I found the complete series engrossing. Your English certainly isn't crappie. I found this easy to listen to and your style is great. Can we expect something more in the near future?

Regards Bruce

Umm, Bruce… let me get this straight. You just ate a four course meal, and you're hungry for more!? Jeez Bruce! Maybe this isn't my business but over indulgent won't be good for the old belly! I mean, I guess you can always try the so called Russian technique of delimiting the "growing barrier" with a very thick belt =D but that would be a really sorry existence don't you think?

So… To answer your question... Yes you can expect more from me. Although, whether it's going to be in the near future or not I do not know.

P.S – how is it that you're only a 1300+ player? Not enough study? Something else? Perhaps it is an area I can help you with by making lectures that address these subjects… although, if it is the endgame where you are deficient I'll have to pass because I hate talking about the endgame. There are enough good books on it and it's really a subject that (in my opinion) one should study alone or via a "physical" tutor.

Thanks chesslectures!

Really, your language is great. It's easy to understand but not hard to follow!

I watched all the 4 vids, and I must say that you brought me to put away my Max-Lange attack/gambit and try out this one!
Friday there will be our blitz-city championship, If I score something with the evans it's your credit!

5 pawns, obviously!

Well, Sengi, thank you for watching and for you nice words.
I have to say that i play the Max-Lange myself and i like it... if it wasn't for this variation: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6! (Lets face it the best defence for black against the Evans or ML is not to play it at all and go straight into the TND) 4.d4 exd4! 5.0-0!? (the "right" move was 5.e5 but it doesn't give much for white so white is hoping that after 5.0-0 black will play 5...Bc5 and then 6.e5 is good - though with accurate play still equal) 5...Nxe4!! And this variation caused me to stop playing the ML, i didn't stopped completely but it's why i don't feel it's the best try.

on ... Nf6, Ng5 is funny. I dunno the english name for it, but in germany it's "preußisch", and it's pretty nice, e.g. ...d5 exd5 Nxd5 Nxf7 (the theory-move is d4 here, but at least for blitz and other fast games, this seems to be practically better). The theoretical player does not recapture on d5 but plays Na5 which leads to complicated positions. The Max Lange is pretty nice, yeah. Maybe you know the german chess magazine "Kaissiber" (it's published in other countrys, too), where there were some articles about it.



greets

Sengi

It's called "The Fried Liver Attack" and while it might work on the Novice player it is completely useless against a strong one.
Actually Na5 is quite the old theory, there is the Fritz variation with Nd4, and the Ulvestad with b5. Both give black quite a good game.

thank you very much for these 4 videos on the evans gambit, also, i just wanted to say that your english is very good. Your analysis was also very good and i think that you could replace it with what is in a book and no one would notice, these were the most informative videos i've seen on here so far.
