Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-10-05  Giearth: Superb play!
Jul-10-05  fgh: Superb play? This game is full of mistakes by both sides, including the very first blunder: 3. c3.
Jul-24-05  Giearth: <fgh> You were kidding right? LOL. BTW, the real blunder is 10... Ne5?. The more accurate move is 10... Be7. If you search the database, 10... Ne5 is always greeted by 11.Bxe5!. White prepares sacrifices at b5 or e6 squares, depending on Black's responses.
May-18-06  Holden: 24.g4 has style. I'd have probably just played 24.RxQ.
Feb-26-07  aazqua: N-g5 and later r*n are very nice as well. It has to be really embarrassing to end up in this sort of position as black.
Nov-18-11  transpo: After 6.Bc4 instead of 6...e6, better is 6...a6 in order to deny White the all important b5 square which is the focal point of Whie's tactical shots after e5 and making ...Nf6 a playable move.Also keeping the c8-h3 diagonal open so that after 7.0-0 Nf6 8.Qe2 it is possible to play 8...Bg4 if then 9.Rd1 then 9...e6 blocking the WKB Black creates a real threat of 10...Ne5
Jul-12-12  Rick360: I'm but 1800 strength and enjoy playing the White side of the Smith-Morra. I must confess that White's 30th (RxNch) is like a bolt of lightning.
