Bernard Parham

In a previous post I mentioned what I call the Nakamura Attack (1.e4 e5 2.Qh5). I also mentioned it was generally known as the Parham Attack after US Master Bernard Parham. I wasn’t aware that Parham is still around, at least he was as of 2003, and how his move came into being.

It’s part of what he calls the Matrix System and entails a system of play and notation that views the 8X8 matrix as a Cartesian plane on which chess pieces form vectors leading to attack routes toward the enemy King. You can read more about it at Chess Drum.

EDIT: Yes, he's still around! The Matrix Man still at it!
