Yesterday I played a well dressed personable gentleman. He essayed the Smith-Morra gambit vs. yours truly. the key position arises after white has played Nc3,Nf3, 0-0, Qe2, Rfd1, Bg5, h3. Black has played ... e6, d6, Nc6, Nf6, 0-0, a6. The plan I came up with was 1 ... h6! 2 Bh4 Nh7 (Ne8 may be better) Now I reckoned after 3 Bxe7 Qxe7 black has reasonable chances to continue on in the middlegame with an extra pawn. the game continued 3 Bg3 (I think I may have played ... b5?? With 3 ... Qc7! black eliminates the tactical shot 4 Bxd6! after which white had a winning game with Bxe7, e5, Ne4, Nd6, and Nce4! following the exchange of light squared bishops. With 3 ... Qc7! I believe black has good prospects, way with ... b5, Bb7, Rfd8, Rac8, Qb6 etc. White can not play 4 e5 because of 4 ... d5! when black gets a lot of loot for the queen after 5 Bxd5 exd5 6 Nxd5 Qd7 7 Nf6+ gxf6 8 Rxd7 Bxd7.

The above is some practical experience but, much better information is available via Tim Taylor's book on the Smith-Morra. I discovered a link to the game at chessgames.com in the forum to the game Ken Smith-Larry Evans San Antonio 1972. The data in the book is outstanding!
