This is a companion volume to the authors' Smith-Morra Accepted, in which they bring to the public their private collection of some 800 games involving the decline of the Smith-Morra Gambit in the Sicilian Defense. Grandmaster Larry Evans points out in his introduction that declining the gambit is not the correct approach to refuting the offer. The frequently quoted games in which Black is able to win are most often the result of White's failure to aggressively pursue his attacking possibilities. This collection is a superb method of studying the myriad opportunities available to both players.

I can personally testify that Ken Smith's interest in this gambit dates back over 45 years, when we first met at a 1947 U.S. junior tournament in Fort Worth, Texas. Since then our paths diverged and Ken, like so many other talented players, permitted business to interfere with chess. I am happy that he has returned to his first love.

Ken has risked this gambit against masters and grandmasters in order to test analysis and chart unexplored terrain. But the opening has gained him many more points that it has cost him because his opponents are often flustered by an unexpected variation or new twist. Ken has worked long and hard to expand our theoretical knowledge in this opening. It is only fitting that this gambit hereby be designated as the "Smith-Morra."

In the Smith-Morra Gambit Accepted, White gets easy development and open lines for his Pawn. The question is whether his enduring initiative is worth material. Improvement has been piled on improvement, refutation has succumbed to counter-refutation. When a gambit is based on positional considerations, it is safe to say only that the better player will win.

Some authors have tried to convey the impression that by declining the gambit, Black solves all his problems and even obtains an advantage. They base this judgment on games where White did not continue forcefully enough. It is not my object to engage in polemics, only to give my thoughts - you cannot refute a gambit by declining it.

The Smith-Morra Gambit opens promising vistas to the player with courage, confidence and knowledge. Only time will tell whether it is sound.

Authors' note: Many of the opening positions in these games transposed to a Smith-Morra Declined after first playing 1.e4 c5 2.c3 Nf6 or 2...d5. Since the subject of this book is the Smith-Morra Declined, moves are shown in that order.
