A continuation for The Giuoco Piano. The Evans Gambit, named after William Evans who played it extensively and has the first recorded use of it in 1826, immediately adds some excitement to that opening. A good gambit for those who are willing to risk for mobility and rapid attack but dont want the extreme risk of the King's Gambit. Here is the chess notation.

1. e4  e5  
2. Nf3 Nc6 
3. Bc4 Bc5
4. b4 (black may decline with 4... Bb6) or continue
4. ... Bxb4
5. c3  Ba5
