    Burgess book: "Winning With the Smith-Morra Gambit" seems to be out of print. Is there any other good book on the gambit?

    'The Modern Morra Gambit: A Dynamic Weapon Against the Sicilian' by Hannes Langrock (published by Russell Enterprises 15 March 2007) is supposed to be out, although you might experience problems obtaining a copy. I keep checking with Amazon, but they haven't yet got it in stock.

    I have both "The Modern Morra Gambit" by Hannes Langrock and "Morra Gambit" by Jozsef Palkovi.

    The latter takes some time getting into but is worth the effort and after a few mishaps has got me some got results here.

    Both are available from www.chessdirect.co.uk who give 10% discount for any order of 2 or more books.

    I have this book.
    Essential for the SMG specialist. It explains all the key moves & variations in a very down-to-earth way, as well as the defences & sidelines.

    It helps you understand the opening, rather than just bashing-out the moves regardless of what black is up to, as so many (even 2000+ players) seem to fall victim to.

    Buy it.

    You can order it from the BCM shop in Baker St (or go there in person) Mr Tebb.
