The Smith-Morra Gambit is played by White as an interesting response to the Sicilian defense.

1. e2-e4 c7-c5
2. d2-d4 c5xd4
3. c2-c3 d4xc3
4. Nb1xc3 Nb8-c6
5. Ng1-f3 e7-e6
6. Bf1-c4 a7-a6
White has given the gambit in which he has sacrificed a pawn to get an attacking position.
7. 0-0 Ng8-e7
8. Bc1-g5 f7-f6
9. Bg5-e3 b7-b5
10. Bc4-b3 Ne7-g6
11. Nf3-d4 Nc6xd4
12. Be3xd4 Bf8-d6
White has an attacking position but Black is a pawn up.
