In the KG, white can't castle and loses a pawn, but apparently that's ok...
After e4 e5 nf3 nc6 d4 exd4 bc4 bc5 ng5, why can't black play d5? (Sorry, if this is a stupid question.)
He loses a pawn.
And I now understand why that position is sort of bad for white. I'd like to thank Tony for helping me see that, instead of pfren who only decides to make me look idiotic.
Your welcome Topkatz. I dont mind Pfren's blunt approach. its just a style thing and refreshing at some level. Also his patience has been tried with the mental leeching by the some of posters here.
Well see, that's cuz pfren is cool. Although trying to combat a beast like the Parham can be mentally straining.
"After e4 e5 nf3 nc6 d4 exd4 bc4 bc5 ng5, why can't black play d5?"
In case Topkatz' answer wasn't clear - white just plays Bxd5 and black has lost a pawn for a little development = not worth it.
He probably thought after he could play Be6 blocking the bishop, which would lose another pawn. That's the only line that is opened after playing D5, which as you said, isn't worth it.
Edit~ No Idea how to get this message out of the quote :S
Anyways, after 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. d3 Bc5 you can make it exciting where you play 5.f4!?
This is my opening, I have played it exclusively, and beginners can easily fall into traps. Tell me this isn't cool: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1076122
So after Bc5, what should you play?
If you're refering to my comment, 5.f4
If you're talking about the scotch, I would play Nxc6.
No, the Parham is MURDERING, BLOODTHIRSTY, and an UNSTOPPABLE ATTACK.
Restrictions apply. Do not take Parham if you have stomach, liver, or kidney problems. Side effects include not learning about chess, painfull death, or a win in less than 5 moves. Contact your doctor if Parham is right for you.
I remember when I had my first beer.
I started reading this post on the Parham and Matrix system and it doesn't make sense.
lol, but in all seriousness, the parham pwns.
It does not.
Rubidium, I'm talking about this position.
This is after 4. Bc5.
Or maybe you don't understand it...
No idea. Let me check the database...
The database says 5.c3 5.0-0 and 5.Ng5. I would play c3, a gambit for developement. 0-0 is premature for me. I would rather wait. But that's just my style.
Should I learn the Dutch or Czech Benoni?
