    I think this was to be a good game. Only I lost on time.

    [Date "2007.8.10"]
    [Round "?"]
    [White "raw"]

    Just in case you come up against it again, try playing 11...b5 as you did the groundwork with ...a6 earlier.
    ...e5 is generally a very bad idea for black in the Morra, unless you are prepared for incredibly sharp play & are familiar with the lines.

    Thanks!

    I have a book by an IM called "how to beat the smith-morra gambit". I still remamber the 6... a6 bit even though in this game it came late, but I don't really remember the rest of the lines. I Have to look at it again.

    I love to play against the Smith-Morra but I really have to brush up on it.
