  1. Fun games. It’s always fascinating to consider how much stronger a player is at 400 points north of one’s own rating.

    What resources exist on the Nf6 line in the Smith-Morra? I imagine Esserman’s book talks about it some.

      Hi David, if I remember correctly, Marc’s book suggested a few lines for White to transpose into the main Alapin with 4.e5 Nd5 5.Nf3 e6 and either 6.Qxd4 or the more common 6.cxd4
