As soon as my schedule allows, I will write more about the Morra Gambit. This information upfront might be interesting for you, though, in case you have been bullied by the Morra-players in the past. The Morra Gambit arises after the moves 1.e4 c5 2.d4?! cxd4 3.c3?




Accepting the Morra Gambit without knowledge is very dangerous for Black.
There are many sharp lines and the white players are normally well prepared specialists.

Accepting the Morra Gambit equipped with knowledge, however, will grant you a slight advantage.
After all, White sacrifices a pawn for just one tempo and Black’s position has no weakness. Hence, we can conclude insufficient compensation.

My analyses cover the following lines:
8..Bb7                                                                                                         Module 1: 4.Nxc3 Nc6 5.Nf3 e6 6.Bc4 a6 7.0-0 b5 8.Bb3 Bb7 =+


Morra Nge7                                                                                                         Module 2: 4.Nxc3 Nc6 5.Nf3 e6 6.Bc4 a6 7.0-0 Nge7 =+


Morra Bb4 2                                                                                                         Module 3: 4.Nxc3 Nc6 5.Nf3 e6 6.Bc4 Bb4 7.0-0 Nge7 =+


You can pick one of these lines or take all three of them for the price of two.
