What will become of this thread without it's spiritual leader, @The_Gavinator?
One shudders to think of the ramifications.
Almost as cataclysmic as IM @Pfren shaving off his beard.
@alexlaw - Do you really think that a guy from Chad is charging $375/hr for chess lessons from a 1000 player in a country with per capita yearly income of < $2000?
Still a better deal than christiansoldier.
its around 10 dollars an hour. minimum is 7.25 an hour
Maybe if they are as dumb as you, the average is well over $20 an hour, and the average American is pretty freaking dumb. If you aren't a retard you can make $30/hr at least.
Who do you all think IM pfren voted for over the weekend? I think he votes conservative. Seems like a misplaced Reagan Republican to me.
I'd say nobody since he lives in Greece. Although it wouldn't suprise me if this country is so crappy that it now lets people who don't live here make the decisions.
nope he just gave up
No I was at camp, that's what most teenagers do during the summer, they don't sit around trolling chess forums for the entire summer.
Maybe Gavinator is just studying for his finals in school?
That was almost as funny as when CS took the board with 2...g6 seriously. I had finals a week or two ago, easiest week of the year. Almost as easy as watching movies like we do the rest of the year, it seems I haven't learned anything since 5th grade.
Gavinator I actually know the stats average is around $10 an hour because I actually tried to get a job. but because the job market sucks balls right now no teen can. and I will be going to a 14 day camp and you are the one who was trolling. this site was great, then you showed up, then you went to camp and it was great again then you showed up and reignited discussions we didn't want to get to again. take this to your own group and leave the public alone. you have a paham group for a reason so you people can discus your pathetic opening. go there and do that.
This is a Parham thread, you are the one trolling by not discussing the Parham in it. And most teenagers work under $10 an hour, many adults are college educated and make well over $30 dollars an hour. Typical conceeded type of person that you are.
59 pages on the parham!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! geez.
yeah but when a person makes that much it is measured in an annual salary not per hour. I mean there are jobs where you don't even need a colledge degree to make approxamately 75 bucks an hour. but you have to be willing to put up with a lot of crap. also don't mess with a redneck. or the son of a soldier.
A $30 an hour salary is a little over 60k a year, most college educated people make at least that. What jobs require no college for 75 bucks an hour? I'm in!
This is similar to one of joeydvivre's lines.
Gavinator it is an underwater welder. Civilian side. you still have to get training. and you can only do it for 5 years. but actually most college educated people can't get a job at 60K a year because they major in something useless like English or Psycology... get a major in something using math and you will easily make that.
Who's fault is it for majoring in a low-paying major? If you want to be paid more, get a high paying major. It's your own fault if you choose to not make money lol...
Heres a refute.
1. e4 e5 2. Qh5 Nc6 3. Bc4 g6 4. Qf3 Nf6 5. Ne2 Bg7 (5... d5 6. exd5 Nb4 7. Qb3 Nbxd5 8. Bxd5 Qxd5 9. Qxd5 Nxd5 10. O-O Bf5
What do you think of my two lines, Gavinator???
After 6...Nb4, Bb5+ and I believe white is up at least a pawn. 5.d3 is bad, 5. Ne2.
I have only recently started reading this thread and needless to say I did not work through the entire thing as there is too much. What I am about to say might have been mentioned before ,apologies if it has.
my personal response to the Parham would be 3...Nh6 and 4...g6 .
Don't think Nf6 is such a great move.
g6 would lose to Qxe5+, and Nh6 just looks bad.
Unless your goal is to lose.... :)
Actually Qxe5+ would hang the queen, nice one.
Since this thread has over 1300 comments, and the best defence found was joey's, which still isn't very good, I decided to establish official Parham theory in this thread:
