As this is a probable draw, white shouldn't be happy, but I believe black should fight for more here and try to improve upon this.
Maybe just continuing Na5 is best, and playing like the position after 8. 0-0 Na5 9. Nbc3.
I still don't like 0-0 for white, what about 8. Nbc3 Na5?
I would immediately play Nf6. This not only forces the Queen to move and gains initiative, but it is a natural response that helps complete development.
Congratulations Scorpio, you have revived a 2 year old thread!
What would you play after Na5?
Probably g4 followed by Bg5, you may want to ask shawshank, he's a much higher rating than me.
This opening sucks :P
after Bg5 h6 Bxf6 Bxf6 0-0-0 b5 c5 Qe7 cxd6 cxd6 black is at least equal and probably better.
heres a game i played recently against a friend
So what, that dummy didnt even play 5.Ne2
lol anybody who plays the parham is a dummy
Is Sungolian back?
So what would you play instead of Bxf6?
Bh4 can be met by simply c6 0-0-0 Qe7, when black's advantage is already growing and it is hard to find a move for white. Maybe Kb1 g5 Bg3 b5 and black has an initiative.
The full line is in the refutation thread, black seems to just be winning, (despite him apparently having no significant attack).
