   Mar-31-15 Harikrishna vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
jientho2: <Edeltalent> On 32...f6 (in the 30...Bg7 31.Bxg7 Qxa7 32.Qh6 line), I get 33.Nxf6+ as a mate in 14, continuing 33...Kf7 34.Ng5+ Ke7 35.Ne6. Black's best try is with a perpetual threat via 35...Nd2, but White has a mate in 11 starting with 36.Bf8+ Kxf6 37.Qh4+ g5 38.Qh6+ Kf7 ...
   Mar-29-15 Tarrasch vs G Marco, 1892 (replies)
jientho2: <aw> Unfortunately, as in the game, White interposes 17 Be7 before c4 and the idea still doesn't go through -- Black will lose a whole knight for the pawn (or a full exchange without any pawn compensation).
   Jul-02-14 Kasparov vs Timman, 1985 (replies)
jientho2: The first inaccuracy seems to be 12... Nc5. Although that is still book, 12...Nd7 is better, allowing sufficient coverage of e6 via Ndc5 (and later Qf6 if necessary), without releasing pressure against g3. It does become the gambit of a pawn however if White replies 13.Be4, which ...
   Oct-27-13 H Bohm vs Roman Hernandez, 1979
jientho2: I agree f3 is the toughest defense, but you don't have to find a 2nd queen sac after 13.Qf3, just use the h file with either Qh4 or Qh6. The threat of mate on either h2 or h1 leaves no defense: 14.Qh3 Nh3+ and mate in 2 more.
   Sep-28-13 S Buervenich vs I Tetenkina, 2001
jientho2: I just played a tournament game as Black with this line, varying at 8...Nc6, which is better. I also blogged about it:
   Jun-24-13 H de Vilder vs M Vergeer, 1994 (replies)
jientho2: Black seems to have quite the better of it after 9.Kf1. 22.Qd7 seems to be a blunder technically, but practically, not so much. Interesting that the fatal blunder seems to be 24...Kh8 when 24...Kh7 wins -- after 25.Rh1 White gets the h6 pawn (for a whole rook), but Black runs his ...
   Mar-11-13 Tartakower vs Leonhardt, 1908
jientho2: Looks like 20...Rxd4 was a solid miss.
   Feb-18-13 M Zelic vs Sax, 2008
jientho2: This is the closest game to what I consider the main line of Smith-Morra, differing 10.Qb3 Qc7 11.Ng5 e6 12.Bxe6 h6 13.Nd5 Nxd5 14.exd5 hxg5 15.dxc6 fxe6 16.cxb7 Rb8 17.Qxe6+ Be7 18.Rac1 Qxb7 19.Bxd6 Qd7 20.Qxd7+ Kxd7 21.Bxb8 Rxb8 22.b3, per my blog ...
