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
If you claim the Parham is unsound, then why would you have hanged (hung) material against it? You have to give it credit, especially in faster games.
yeah in faster games, but at classical time controls with a consistent player as Black Black has at least a draw
The Fartham is a great opening for Gavinyodogs and all assorted hopeless cases, nobody claimed the opposite.
Jetfighter, please, you have no clue what you are talking about. The Parham is incredibly underrated, by arrogant people by you who just overlook it. Since you're on chesscube now, save up 2500 cubits, and rent the Parham video by Andrew Martin. Numerous times he states how underrated it is, and how white had excellent position and tactical chances in the games he analyzed.
Every choice for your top 5 is Lame. Every "good" opening is bad. Everyone understands that except you 2.
