Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-09-04  InspiredByMorphy: 12. ...Ne8 looks like it would have given black the better game.
Feb-09-06  DanielBryant: Doesn't the d-pawn still fall, though?

After losing a game to the Smith-Morra I am determined to find a way through the complications without declining the gambit. Surprisingly, this is the only game in the database with 8.Bg5, which puts Black in a very uncomfortable position.

Mar-22-09  Ulhumbrus: After 13 e5 Black cannot play 13..dxe5 as then 14 Bxf6 removes the N on f6 which defends the bishop on d7.
Mar-22-09  WhiteRook48: what a terrible player!

  Honza Cervenka: 12...Qc7? was a blunder.
Apr-07-11  Sem: Well, he was only a Bauer.
