This is a thread so people can see the defences against the Parham Attack, and alter them if need-be. So if you think you have a way to stop the almighty Parham Attack, please post a line.
Here's the Parham Attack:
And here's where the defences will go:
Well, since it's already stopped by 1...d5,
There has been disscussion of this on many other threads, and it is getting too confusing to see where people's lines stand. As of now, there are no lines that can stop it, because this is the best opening in chess.
Do not argue with idiots. they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
And after Bc4?
Let's not show gavinator any defense. If he thinks the line is good, let him troll. Untracked!
Not only do I dont' think it's good, it is good.
1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nf6! 3.Qxe5 Be7 4.Nc3 Nc6 5.Qg3 O-O 6.e5 Nh5 7.Qf3 g6 Black is better.
This is the line, correct? I think white looks pretty good.
Oh my fault Bruce, I didn't realize that you were that blunt. 1. e4 e5 2. Qh5 b6 3. Qxe5
I agree with Joey's line as well as pfren's move
Hankas, white would do 4. d3, rather than Nc3, fix it then I will post. Bruce and Joey, I posted yours.
If 4.d3 it is even better for black as white does not develop his pieces. 4..Nc6 stands still. The key is to push white's queen around with developing moves.
why not add mine
Hankas, what would play after 4. d3?
4 d3 Nc6
And after Qg3? Could you post a board for this?
4. d3 gxh6
