C52 The Evans Gambit Still Stings

Victor Ciocâltea (January 16, 1932, Bucharest, Romania – September 10, 1983, Manresa, Spain) was a Romanian chess master. He was awarded the International Master title in 1957 and the International Grandmaster title in 1978. Among his notable games is the one at the 16th Chess Olympiad, held in Varna in 1962, where he defeated Bobby Fischer.  (Copied verbatim from Wikipedia)

Here he employs the antiquated Evans Gambit with dazzling effect to win in just 22 moves.
