The french is great if you like to draw, which most people do since they play Ruy.
The more you talk the more you convince me that you should quit chess.
hey Gavinator if you look at any of the games from the current Tal Memorial, you will realize your statement that the Ruy is a draw is complete BS.
Its funny you should say that considering, my Chessmaster engine says white's best game with the Parham is only a draw...dumb to only play to draw, especially with white....it makes me wonder if you are on drugs or something...
My houdini, the strongest engine in the world, gives white a win with the Parham...
And jetfighter that's real smart, say the Ruy Lopez isn't drawish by giving games from the strongest attacking player of all times, that's real freaking smart there...
actually Gavinator it is because they are ATTACKING PLAYERS. if they play the Ruy then it must mean it is a good ATTACKING Opening. albiet a lot of theory, but if you can get over that it is perfectly playable.
BS even my dog gives a negative evalulation after 2.Qh5.
stop trolling guys seriously. Gavinator insists that there have been no good lines presented when there has obviously been many presented, so its clear now he is just trying to get under people's skins. Stop feeding the troll.
And the houdini evaluation is probably deeper into a bad line for black, it is clearly even according to the engine, lots of times negative. After all, the engine prefers to waste a tempo putting the queen back on d1
So what if it does, you are no where near capable of playing on Houdini's level. So what does it matter. You can't see 30 moves ahead. Let me guess, you can put a square peg in a round whole if it is small enough...
That's not my point, no human plays at houdini's level, my point is that others were saying that the Parham always gives a draw with engine play, and they are trolls.
And CS, you keep talking about these lines, but I never see them. Funny how that works, isn't it? Please show me these good lines that I am certainly "ignoring".
Why don't you post the line that the best engine in the world gave that is so crushing?
Houdini does not give a win for white with the parham, unless you happen to have it unplugged, or are running it on some computer that was made in 1900.
How bout the line that Joey posted where he would play for 25 K as Black that line was most certaintly better for Black yet you ignored it.
Parham, not quite
Bashing trolls, like taking an arrow to the knee
Somoli dued. how bout you take a look at our marine snipers.
How is the Parham refuted?
I didn't say it was refuted I said you were.
If the overall disadvantage is three pawns for a human to overcome, why waste two tempos and get yourself into a hole when there are far more viable options available? It makes no sense. Napoleon wasn't brilliant, no one plays his opening, but it is so similar to your beloved, why can't you see that, do you need a hair cut?
Jetfighter, you insult me. I am not a pirate. I am a fighter for my land.
Sorry Didn't think it could be interprited that way I also didn't mean Navy snipers. I was talking about the youtube vids of The USMC Snipers in Afghanistan
