On the contrary, I think that Nakamura or some other master stated that playing chess with such short time controls actually was detrimental to their chess, since moves tend to be played based on intuition as opposed to calculation.
Is that why Nakamura is the US champion and in the top 10 in the world?
Recent bullet win against a Parham junkie. Pretty typical in my experience.
I'd be surprised if Naka exclusively played short blitz games, but I could be wrong. My point is that the 3|0 or 1|0 games being posted by your friend (or alter ego?) appear as poor examples of opening understanding.
Incidentally, you don't see Parham players blunder the queen on move two at time controls longer than blitz. But on the other hand, you don't really see Parham players win at time controls longer than blitz.
The modern effectively refutes the Parham.
I don't see why you all think we are the same person, and Nakamura plays tons of blitz, he's probably the strongest blitz player in the world. He's also had tons of success with the Parham...
Nakamura was fifth at the 2011 World Blitz Championship in case you don't know (although you seem to know everything but how to play chess). Aronian is the current blitz champion, and no, he does not play the Fartham.
Says the 1400, and what about the 1800 whatupyodog? What about the 2700 Nakamura? What about the Master Bernard Parham who plays Qh5 against anything that doesn't lose the queen?
Back to the scotch...
You are right, mr. Gavinyodog.
I had a won position vs. a 1900 here, and then blew it by taking what I thought was a free knight, it was a KG too. people need to have a healthy respect for all openings except the fools mate, the 4 move mate, and the Patzer Opening
This guy plays the parham exclusively.
You guys are arguing with guys who named themselves "The_Gavinator" and "whatupyodog."
They're not even the cool 12 year olds. They're the dorky ones. Come on. Everybody lay off.
The Parham deserves a little respect, atleast in bullet games.
no its quite fun, it helps us practice technique's for flame wars
The KG sucks, except the Dobule Muzio. Here's how I'd rank chess openings:
2. Double Muzio
3. Fried Liver
5. Every other opening except King's Gambit (not including the Double Muzio)
here are how I rate the openings, based on 500 some odd years of study, and some opinion
3. Ruy Lopez
2. Dragon Sicilian
1. Najdorf Sicilian
but that is all fairly objective, Notice that a d4 pawn opening is not included, and that an opening that could be reasonably called unsound is not included, hence my exclusion of the Latvian, The Halloween Gambit(epic as it is), The Patzer opening, and the Morphy Gambit (with a name like Morphy gambit, how can it be unsound lol)
The KG was busted like 40 years ago by fischer jetfighter.
That is complete BS. if he believed that he would have never played it. The KG was never busted, and even a good KG player knows how to handle the Fischer defence. Plus Fischer only took on 3. Nf3, never 3. Bc4, he played BOTH after he wrote the article,
Pfren please help prove this point.
That's funny you'd call the Parham unsound, because you posted about 5 boards where you hung material until you got one where you finally didn't lose material, even though you crippled your own position.
you must be forgeting that I am not infallable
