    This guy (Parham) got to an master level putting all pieces except the queen on 2 points?

    The Parham attack must be devastating.

    @post 839 lol playing for an endgame are we.

    all of these are logical moves and everything gives white an advantage.

    I'd prefer 4. Nxe4 but whatever floats your boat.

    White doesn't have an initiative if he plays 4.Nxe4.

    Yeah 4. Nxe4 is instant equality.  5 ...Be7 is instant equality and none of the sharp stuff in this opening (This is Frankenstein-Dracula mainline).  I am currently on the white side of a FD in a Vote Chess game that we are losing.  Bummer.

     I didn't realize that it was the Frankenstein-Dracula. Wow.

    You know that JF meant a lone bishop cannot FORCE mate, while a rook is sufficient.

    "it takes two bishop's assisted to mate"

    Jetfighter is just freakin dumb. I think he might be the same person as Christiansoldier.

    You really struggle to remain rational don't you Gavin? I'm amazed we're trying to have discussion with some kid that calls himself the gavinator obsessed with a Gadaffi look alike who reckons vectors have a use in chess. Enlighten us how does black force mate below?

    I know, but 1 bishop can give mate too.

    You fail to understand the game of chess is not a cooperative affair. The mate you showed earlier cannot be forced. Therefore, jetfighters statement that two bishops in cooperation with a king are needed to force mate is completely valid.

    He never said force now did he?
