    Nakamura has played the Parham just twice under regular time controls, and was lucky to score half a point with it. All the rest from him are blitz games. Last game dated 2005.

    Please go on with your picturesque nonsense.

    Did you read his comment. He said he had even game had he played the middle game properly.

    The opening had nothing to do with the games.

    How about respect?

    That's an IM you're talking to.

    I don't care who he is.

    It means crap to me.

    The opening is playable and several GM's suport it.

    Who are these 'several GM's'?

  • #244

    Nakamura said it was playable. Saying its playable is not the same as supporting it. The Muzio Gambit is playable and many other stupid things named after animals. Several GM's???? Quotes please?

    For one Andrew Martin and Hikaru Nakamura.

    <--- this guy exclusively played the Parham Attack.

    "I do believe that 2.Qh5 is a playable move, in fact I had a very good position in the game, and was close to winning if I had in fact played 23.e5."

    Hikaru Nakamura

    Between players of rank 1400-2400 this opening is fine. 

    Unless you're playing a Super GM,

    The game will be even. You are arguing from the point of view of machines.

    NM

    Yes he is a National MASTER. And Nakamura said he was WINNING, against a 2600.

    Nakamura is in the top ten. Are you trolling?

    with two draws...

  • #256

    I'm sorry I didn't finish my statement. Nakamura wouldn't play the Parham in a real game against pfren, based on the fact that he hasn't played the Parham in seven years.

    GM's tend to draw, I know you're not very smart, but that's how it is.

    On that database Black had a 59% win ratio, which is not very good.

    That tells us that white won 7 games, black won 6 games, and 4 were drawn. Which proves absolutely nothing.
