    gambiteer, I'm not entirely sure where this is going, but I'd like to give Nf4 a shot.

    I'm not convinced 9.c3 or 10.d4 are the best moves for white.

    joey, that gives back the gambit pawn, although I'll agree black looks better, this was just a creative try, I think the mainline Parham might be better.

    True, the Parham Gambit was just a thought, it can cause problems for black if he tries to hold on for the pawn, although I agree black is better in your board.

    See, the thing is I'm reasonable, I can agree that after move 3 above, black is better.

    This line shows how bad the Parham really is.

    This is the Parham Gambit, we have already stated this isn't the best, and the engine didn't even accept the gambit. Are you sure white was played by the engine? It hung a rook pretty quickly. CHCL, you are one of the biggest trolls on here, I have repeatedly seen you insult this opening, and not once give a line against it.

    Idk, some moves look questionable, it seems that white set himself up for the skewer.

    1. He didn't accept the gambit because it is worse for Black
    2. The Parham gambit is unsound
    3. The main line Parham is not good for White only because of his misplaced development, structural weaknesses, and the loss of tempo
    4. I am not a troll
    5. I am using my Fritz 13 to make an opening book on all the Parham lines and then I will post it all here

    white prefered losing the exchange and a rock instead of the queen or the game

    Incredible how much attention this line has gotten here on chess.com!
    It's just a line which mixes things up a little and produces a game with equalish chances for both sides. It's not fantastic but not horrible either.

    This line is quite interesting though, if you haven't discussed it already:
