    I really don't understand how the albin or Budapest can even be considered bad openings. Many players win and lose with them. It all depends on how experienced each player is with each opening.

    Well a few spoilsports like to win more than lose...

    I dont understand why you would rate parham highly...i always respond 2...nf6

    Curious - I thought the Parham was 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 -- so isn't 2...Nf6 a blunder because of 3.Qxe5+


    its not a blunder its a gambit :P it works splendidly in my experience. IN fact i usually jsut end up winnign the other guys queen within 10 moves but thats probably because its usually very weak players playing the parham. But i tihnk the gambit is sound  and i would play it against anyone
