  perfidious: This game more closely resembles a first-round mismatch from Gibraltar or a US Open than a game between a strong GM and an IM who has a notable scalp or three.
Aug-25-15  der623: Esserman is one of the recognized authorities on the Smith-Morra, having beaten Loek van Wely with it. Why would he think that he could veer from his strength to take on a Super-GM in a mainstream Najdorf?
