    Actually IM pfren, I am slightly curious of the c3 move by white. 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nc6 3.Bc4 g6 4.Qf3 Nf6 5.c3!? could you give me some lines for good play by black? Thanks.

    If you are interested in the Parham please analyze at a different forum.

    We had a forum for that, but that got closed down because you're not allowed to share ideas on this site.

    5...Bh6!? followed by Na5 looks strong for Black.

    @Gavinator,  That is not true. There was to much swearing on that forum.

    Lol that is definetly not true. Usually when people have different ideas people tell them they suck and that's it. I tried to be helpful by posting sample games, lines, and also talking about players who have played this, so therefore the thread was closed. There's swearing on this thread, it's not closed, there was a thread a while back where some creepy guy was hitting on a 15 year old girl, that's not closed. Mine just involved a different idea.

    Thank you for those lines, IM. I was just a bit curious (I don't usually play ...e5 anymore). But useful to remember! Thanks!

    That's funny, Andrew Martin didn't seem to think it was that stupid. Here's a quote from him "This opening is definetly much better than its reputation".

    It's just that everyone on here is so unwilling to look at new ideas, they just immediately say its bad, they won't even look at it, and say "Everyone HAS to use the same thing". There's a word for that, it's called communism.

    Some of my closest friends have been communists.  None of them ever brought their queens out too early.

    Everyone has to use the same thing

    A few pros played as black 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6

    like Bill Wall.

    There are plenty of innovative players. Tony Miles played 1...a6.

    It just isn't usually played because it is worse.

    No it's usually not played becasue it's overlooked. Look at whatupyodog, he got banned because he did so good with it.

    Here is an instructive game by Andrew Martin speaking of him. I think he constructed it. Please no offensive comments towards me, this is all him

    But that's not the Parham. The point of it, other than winning rooks, scholar's mates, and kiddie countergambit, is that g6 is a bad move. That's what let's you pin, and let's you win.

    ChristianSoldier007

    but what if h6 is played before the pin?

    Oh wait, we are heading into more debate. I'm out, just thought Id show that game that IM Martin did a video on to show why you dont bring your queen out early :P

    Continue with whatever you were doing

  • 23 months ago · #99

    The_Gavinator

    He also had another video showing how the Parham is overlooked by many of the trolls on here. And yeah you should probably head out, last time you did a move thing it didn't work out so hot for you. h6 is just weak, FYI.
