The Parham Attack

  • #1

    Recently there has been a lot of buzz about this opening, and I was quite surprised that anyone was playing it. As a beginner chess player, it was one of the first openings I saw. Now a days, it is well aware that the opening is "refuted" or atleast black is able to get an excellent position out of it. In the following Diagram, I will show this.

    After Qb3, Nd4 also works. 

    Bxf7 Ke7 Qc4 b5! 0-1.

    This is just a variation of the parham.

    Well, as far as I can tell, black is better from the opening. I am not saying that white is lost, white is just worse, which is not a good sign, considering they should get a slight advantage. I saw one game that you played with this, and you won as a result of tactical errors, not the opening. Ne2 is another interesting option. Ill look it over.

    2...b6 is Known as the F01 Fruit Attack Kasparov variation.

  • #6

    2...Nf6 is also interesting, to just sac the pawn.

    Wow, another great diagram except people keep playing like crap for white, why would 6. be c3, you do d3 to threaten pin. The moves after that white plays so dumb i dont feel like addressing. You guys are worse than jetfighter.

    What's the matter talk is cheap you have NOTHING put up or shut-up and stop wasting everybody's time !  Cool

    I already have in other threads i think we have solved chess for white after 1.e5.

    Ok my brother i would love to stay and chat with you gotta go, May the force be with you !   Cool

    I think whatup only plays the parham against 1...e5. Against moves like 1...e6 and 1...d5 he has been playing mainline French and scandi. by the way, what up is a GM.

    They are practicing politics.  Render unto Caissa those things that are Caissa's!  You are right, Stack Overflow has good incentives.  I do wonder, however: is there such thing as the Parham? Where is Parham? Does it have to do with salted pork? Is it related to other meaty foods such as Prawns?
