FM Dennis Monokroussos presents Esserman-van Wely

This week’s show covers the impressive win by Marc Esserman over Loek van Wely from this year’s US Open, a nice hatchet job using the Smith-Morra Gambit. Dennis also includes a couple of his old speed chess wins in the Gambit, and offers some advice for Black as to how to, and how not to, decline it.
