My over the board rating is 1500 which is something like 1600-1700 here meaning higher rating than 95+% of the players in the website maybe even more. This is a training account for a friend of mine as you can see in the first 10 games of mine. The point as we all here try to give you is that smith morra is a better choice for white

You are trying in vain: This guy knows everything.

I find as black, it’s important to keep your dark square bishop to defend the dark squares; and the game is comfortable in the Wing Attack or Mengarini.

I have had success with the sideline Katalimov (pawns on b6 and e6) at the 1300-1900 bracket:

The funny part is, no, I don't play the Sicilian, yet I still must deal with the Wing Gambit! There are two versions of the Wing Gambit. The other is 1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 d5 3.e5 c5 4.b4. I prefer Korchnoi's answer, 4...d4!
