Not illustrated. 1895 Excerpt: ...be, the From Gambit can hardly safely be played in answer to the King's Bishop's Pawn two, and the value of this important opening will become further enhanced. Mr. Evelyn's variation is as follows:--1 P to KB 4 1 P to K 4 2 P takes P 2 P to Q 3 3 P takes P 3 B takes P 4 P to KKt 3 This appears the right move; the attack which has been feared arising from P to KR 4 and P to KR 5, as shown by Mr. Evelyn's variations, can be effectually met and White remains with a Pawn more and a superior game. The illustrative games, especially four contested at the Hastings Festival, are extremely interesting. 4 P to KR 4 5 B to KKt 2 5 P to KR s 6 P to Q 4 6 P takes P 7 P to KR 3 7 Q to KB 3 (Played by two young masters against Mr. Evelyn and H.
