Hello Everyone! A recent subject of debate is the parham attack. Hundreds of posts have been made with no conclusion, so I decided to reenter the fight and stop this nonsense once and for all. Normally I would not care as it would be their problem, however the parhamers are posting in other threads and hindering other people's development by convincing them that its good.
Let me also mention what I mean when I say I want to defeat the parham: I don't want to show it loses, but I want to show that it fails to produce an attack and hands black at least equality, much of the time a development advantage as well.
So here is the start of the parham:
The above line has been agreed upon by both sides, however now it starts to vary. The move I will be looking at here is 5...Bg7. 5...d6 and 5...Na5 are worthy alternatives, however this is my move. And now here white has three options. In Part 1 I will go through one of them in detail. Let's start with the move 6.d3
feel free to reply to this if you think there were any mistakes so that we can finish the d3 variation. I consider this a bust, so now there are two more moves that white can try that I will cover in the next parts.
