The recently proposed effective equation of motion for the 4D-Einstein–Gauss–Bonnet gravity admits a static black hole solution that has, like the Rissner–Nordström charged black hole, two horizons instead of one for the Schwarzschild black hole. This means that the central singularity is timelike instead of spacelike. It should though be noted that in , the solution always admits only one horizon like the Schwarzshild solution. In the equation defining the horizon, the rescaled Gauss–Bonnet coupling constant appears as a new ‘gravitational charge’ with a repulsive effect to cause in addition to event horizon a Cauchy horizon. Thus it radically alters the causal structure of the black hole.
