I think this is a fairly decent opening and you can fool many players this way with your queen if you're white.
It depends on the other player's rating I guess
Parham Attack, greatest opening ever.

This is a great opening. Anybody who says otherwise is truly a Patzer.
Fairly decent opening if you can find an opponent daft enough to play g6 you mean...
I played this in the Bongcloud Memorial last June vs. GM Vitaly Jerkov. He never saw it coming.

wait, are my OTB games not showing up here? hmm.
Your most recent game was center counter defence
