Is the Evans Gambit ... ... currently being used much at the IM and GM level? If so, by who?

Anyone here like the opening? Anyone know of a good website with annotated games with the Evans, and/or know of any good books that teach the opening?

Do YOU use it with regularity and success? Thanks ...

a quick look on chessbase GM Nigel Short and GM Morozevich seem to use this opening quite often(as white). Also, I know Shirov has used this opening before. In his game collection "fire on the board" he played a game this opening with the white pieces. I don't know about a good book specifically on this opening. Maybe somebody else does? Annotated games...try chessgames.com. It has 15 annotated games on the evans gambit.

Evans Evans is still played, recently Kasparov won two games in it.
I like this opening very much and play it, now in thematic mini-tournament here.
look at excellent articles of Tim Harding:
