horrible, horrible thread...
why would white play 4 Qd1. They keep the pressure with 4. Qf3
4. Qf3 Nf6, now what?
5. d4 Nxd4 -+
5. Qb3 Nd4 6. Bxf7+ Ke7 7. Qc4 b5 drops the bishop, -+
And more passive white moves don't go anywhere. Stick to respectable 2nd moves like Nf3, d4, and Bc4.
1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nc6 3. Bc4 g6 4. Qf3 Nf6 5. Nc3 Nd4 6. Qd1 c6 7. Nf3 d5
With black having the intiative in a roughly equalized position.
Its called Queenside Attack. I think it is only for low rated players
If 5. Ne2 then 5...Bg7 6. d3 d6 and I still favor Black.
Naka just has a sense of humor and decided to confuse people
Thanks for the Tip! Just won a game with this opening. :D
You're welcome :)
This opening is bad if white doesn't play c3 to prevent Nd4.
7 Bg5 h6 8. Bh4 0-0 9. Bbc3 Na5 If 10. Bxf6 then Qxf6, 11. Qxf6 Bxf6, and I still like Black's position not only due to the bishop pair.
I meant to say Bb3.
i don't think so..erm
@jim483 How is bc4 forcing anything other than the immidiate loss of the Queen. Doesnt seem that clever to me.
I honestly think this thread was started as a bit of interweb trolling. Noone with the ability to calculate 2 moves in advance would play it.
I'm not following you olthetime, my comments were in the vein of the devils advocate, trying to rationalize why people want to play the parham. I thought the last couple sentences of my post made that evident but i guess not. if you had read some of my earlier comments on the topic you see that i'm no fan of the parham. but while were on the subject. 1.e4...e5, 2.qh5...nc6, 3.bc4 drops the queen? i also tend to agree about your thoughts that someones just trolling. awaiting your reply.
nswwsn, this the problem with people introducing new openings, people try to shoot it down with completely pointless lines. why would white play 6. 0-0, that completely gives up the attack. play 6. d3
0-0 is slightly better than d3 but both work you won't get a strong attack though because black can force the trading off of pieces. However you can get a complex middle game which would be useful since you will (probably) be more familiar with the position than your opponent as it is not a common opening.
This opening is great. No true chess player would play anything else.
