Im going to go look up the parham now, find out what it is...... I'll be back as Ah-nold would say.....
Yes of course, the ol' Qh5. For sure that'll catch em off guard. Oh, they wont have prepared for that one. I WILL try that one day, i will. When I just dont care anymore, Ive given up, or just when Ive had a half gallon of Jack Daniels or something........
Nakamura actually played that against a GM in a U.S. tournament. He lost. Really. Go figure, who woulda thunk it?
There is an option of a 1 b3 and 1...b6 repertoire. Theory is limited and it's straightforward. Might not be your cup of tea, but thought I'd throw it out there since you are interested in limiting the theory plus having similar setups with both white and black.
play the english. enough said
the issue of what to play as black is more troubling.
you right Loveyousomuch..:D
