Hi everyone,
I just start looking at Trent DVD and it seems to me that he misses some black lines (such as 1.e4,c5 2.d4,cxd4 3.c3,dxc3 4.Nxc3,e6 5.Nf3,a6 6.Bc4,b5) unless I blundered. But I had to see all the dvd before making any conclusion.
But, at the moment it seems a good work & what I like is Trent doesn't say white is better in most lines or even winning but white as good play. He's an objective one !

@Djy

You quoted my post out of context. I was providing examples of the marketing, not how to prove a slight edge in the Morra.

Sorry! My english is too bad . It's a misundertood!

Without a doubt it's the strongest var.  Cool but probably white
can take a draw after 10.Bb3 Na5 11.e5 ed5 12.Be5 Nb3 13.ab3 Bb7 14.Nb5 ab5 15.Bf6 gf6 16.Qb5+ Qd7 17. Ra8 Ba8 18.Qb8+
I'm not afraid when blacks plays queenside before they thinks there is a black king on the board!

@Djy

I agree with MNb that the 10.Be2 variation should be about equal, but 8...e6 9.Qe2 b5 10.Bb3 Na5 is a better try for an edge.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

(Bxf3 and the pair of bishops provide more than vague compensation

Yes Richard give 8...Bf3 (Bh5!?) 9.Qf3 e6 10.Rfd1 Qb8 but...11.Be2! (No Nh5)
Be7 ( others are worse) 12.Qg3 and white win back the pawn with at least an even game!

I am not sure. 9.Qb3 e6 10.Be2 does not look very natural, but I haven't found a road to advantage for Black. 9.h3 Bh5 (Bxf3 and the pair of bishops provide more than vague compensation) 10.Qb3 e6 and 11.Qxb7 is possible because of Na5 12.Qb4 e5 13.Qa4+.

I meant to say more than some vague compensation, but I suspect we still disagree Wink

White's road to equality after 6...a6 7.0-0 Nf6 8.Bf4 is pretty narrow though.


Yes but as asual in the Morra!

How nice to disagree with a titled player ... I think you are wrong indeed. White's road to equality after 6...a6 7.0-0 Nf6 8.Bf4 is pretty narrow though.

So has Lawrence managed to bust 6...a6! then, pray tell? I find it hard to believe W can claim some vague compensation, but I might be wrong...

Morra is harmless against a prepared opponent and Black should keep a slight edge with best play.

Just to take a few examples:



Please,Have you some exemples?

Probably a typo. 6...Nf6 is highly suspect.

Transposing to the mainline c3 Sicilian with 3..Nf6 is "extremely suspect"? This is a joke, right?
