1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 Bc5 3. b4 Bxb4 4. c3 Be7 5. Nf3 d6?!

Black seeks to avoid transposing to the Evans Gambit, but this is a mistake.

5... Nc6 6. d4 transposes to standard lines of the Evans Gambit.

 

6. d4

Also good for White is 6. Qb3 Nh6 7. d4 O-O 8. Bxh6 gxh6 9. dxe5!? (9. O-O Nc6 10. Bb5 Na5 11. Qc2 c6 12. Bd3) 9... dxe5 10. Nxe5 Qd6

 

6... exd4?!

6... Nc6! is still Evans Gambit territory: 7. dxe5! Bg4! (7... Nxe5? 8. Nxe5 dxe5 9. Qh5! Fischer-Celle 1964) 8. exd6 (8. Qb3!? Bxf3 9. Bxf7+ Kf8 10. gxf3) 8... Qxd6 9. Nbd2

 

7. Qb3 Be6?

Black must try 7... dxc3 8. Bxf7+ Kf8 9. Nxc3

 

8. Bxe6 fxe6










9. Nxd4!

The strongest move, after which Black must lose material or have great difficulty sheltering his king.

 

9... Bf6?

a) 9... Qc8 10. Nxe6 Bf6 11. O-O and White has excellent attacking chances with Black's King in the center.

b) 9... Nd7 10. Nxe6 (10. Qxb7 Nc5!=) 10... Nc5! 11. Nxc5 dxc5 12. Qxb7

 

10. Qxb7 Nd7?

Relatively best is 10... Bxd4 11. Qxa8

 

11. Nxe6 Qc8 12. Qxa8!

Black resigns as 12...Qxa8 13.Nxc7+ will leave White up the Exchange and some pawns.

Simpler than 12. Nxc7+ Ke7 13. Qxa8 Qxc7 14. e5! (14. O-O?? Nb6) 14... Nxe5 15. O-O

1-0
