To all those waiting for my Smith Morra 'refutation'... don't worry, it's coming :).
In the meantime! A thematic blitz game I recently played (with annotations) in the Grand Prix attack. I know a lot of Sicilian players who have trouble with this line and so, without getting into a theoretical discussion, I have provided a three step solution to the problem of the Grand Prix. You're welcome :)
nice tactic at the end and a really instructive game thanks
Quick and to the point. Thanks.
It should also be noted that maintaining control of the f5 square is rather useful... White needs a pawn there if he ever plans on mating black. You'll notice that by move 11 when I played ... b5, that I have 5 (!) bits controlling that irritating f5 square.
Just a heads up.
