If black takes it, than White regains it with Qf3. Kasparov would have obviously seen it or he wouldn't have played it.
Here is a quick game I played, just to show you guys.
I am sorry, but black played horribly. You should show a better example...
Beautiful game The_Gavinator, you obviously could never have done this with an opening such as the ruy lopez. In this game you gained material very quickly while if you played another opening such as the ruy lopez the game would have been very long and drawn out, probably winding up a draw.
Actually, black played fairly well in that game.
That's what I was thinking whatupyodog. I agree black played badly, but going 20 moves deep in the ruy lopez would give me a more closed position, I won material in the first 10 moves with this.
the title of worlds fastest man given to the person who runs a 4.01 fourty yard dash
Only America uses yards dumbass, the rest of the world is in meters.
you misquoted me dumbass
Opponents who blunder a piece in the opening vs the pharam will not know 20 moves of any opening. They probably barely know 5 moves of any opening.
But yes, trappy openings will score faster and more frequently against beginner class opposition. It just depends on what kind of chess you aspire to.
@whatupyodog, how did you get such a good rating if you play such bad openings. 95% of chess.com thinks your 2 openings are horrible. They are just plain bad.
No actually, most people on this site are the beginners who know tons of openings and bluder pieces. The ruy lopez, even after move 3, is very closed. It would be harder for me to do what I did.
CHCL, maybe it's because those openings aren't bad. (DUHHHHH!!!!)
LOL CHCL, maybe its cuz those openings pwn, plus i barely even play on this site, i would probably be over 2k if i did.
Also CHCL, you forget to take into account that successful troll is successful.
I mean seriously...
Gavinator here is my analysis
That is the point. If you would play stronger openings you would easily break the 2000 barrier. It is holding you back.
Also why don't Grandmasters play the Parham? Obviously because it is bad.
wow, great defense bro on moves 7 and 8, except one small problem on move 9, Bxf6 pwns the fuck out of black.
I am sorry if people are taking my suggestions the wrong way. I am not trying to troll though.
NO, i am taking them seriously, its this jetfighter dumbass im pissed at.
yeah, That is why I don't normally do analysis this late at knight
I've already explained this, the Parham is incredibly open, a slight error can cause fireworks to explode, gm's tend to avoid that. At our lower level, mistakes are common, and Parham players can explode. I have never played a master, so my slight tactical errors aren't being exploited, and I can use my open attacking game to win games. I don't see why that's bad?
Jetfighter, I dont' see what you did. You added like two comments. And have you considered I did so well because of the Parham? If I was in the ruy lopez, I wouldn't be able to exploit my opponent like that, which is why the Parham pwns,
Why is it so hard to buy a properly sized chess set and board?
