Jun-05-06  GufeldStudent: Okay, did Smith just blunder here or what?
Jun-06-06  borisbadenoff: Well he played a pretty weak game here.
And the final patzer move was 33. Qc2 where Qc1 was needed. To exchange Queens and Bishops for a pawn.

But at move 32 he was already in a clearly inferior position

  kingscrusher: Not a fair test of the Smith-Morra Gambit - if only Tal played it in this tournament a lot, I am pretty sure he would have hacked some of the GMs here.
