Is anything better for me than the Parham?

pfren

Putting Steinitz, Nimzovich and Parham in the same piece of text is an insult for two of the three. I will let you guess names.

Matrix chess has just come around. I'm sure the first time people saw hypermodernism they thought those guys were insane too.

The_Gavinator

He used his system to become a chess master, it obviously works pretty well...

The_Gavinator

Lol, I am quite rational, you guys just seem to be arguing with no merit...

In my opinion, the Parham is busted.



The_Gavinator

That f6 knight is easily pinned, to stop it black must do h6 followed by g5, and ruin their kingside. A strong attacker could easily exlpoit that.

CHCL

Here is a sample line...The moves might not be sound, but this line makes my point.

The_Gavinator

move seven would be Nc3

Ok, so now I figure he's just trolling Laughing.  Gav's totally ignoring comments and keeps repeating the same junk.

The_Gavinator

7. h3 is a waste of a move...

The_Gavinator

I actually like to play Nc3 on move 6, to offer immediate support against d5

The knight is still extremely vulnerable. Anyways, nobody has given a better attacking option, in most other lines white dominates.

What do you mean by that???

The_Gavinator

Name another opening where white is better at attacking (non-gambit) :P. That's all I've wanted from the start.

CHCL

People sacrifice material for tempo, or for a strong positional advantage. Why would you want to avoid sacrifices when you get good compensation?

CHCL

Study Tal's games and realize you can attack from a slow position. Tal played the Ruy Lopez and created good attacking chances.

The ruy lopez is incredibly passive, you cannot name one line where it is aggresive. Gms play the ruy lopez all the time and the game always winds up a draw. The_Gavinator, the parham is definately the way to go.

You know what, I will. I haven't heard anything better, so therefore this must be the best. I've asked for 12 pages for recommendations, all I hear is ruy lopez, or people ratting on Parham. So therefore, I'm just sticking with the Parham.
