Fischer Teaches How To Play The Best Chess Opening After 1.e4 [Evans Gambit]

Before we get to today’s lesson, let me announce the five lucky winners who won the Super Pack in our recently concluded Father’s Day special offers. They are: Michael, Milan, Tomoaki, Majid, William.


Today, I’d like to share with you the best chess opening for White against beginner and intermediate-level players, featuring a legendary game played by Bobby Fischer in a 10-board simul.

If you could ask Fischer what the best chess opening for White against players below 1800 ELO is, here’s what he would probably say: the Evans Gambit!

The Evans Gambit is a variation of the Italian Game, which arises after these opening moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4, typically followed by 4…Bxb4 5.c3 after Black accepts the gambit.

When playing against lower-rated opponents, you usually want to attack them because they often lack proper defensive skills. The Evans Gambit is perfect for launching an all-out attack against Black.

Below, you can find the chess game of Bobby Fischer shown in the video:
