After 1.d4 f5 we have the Dutch Defence. It is not as popular as the Queen’s Gambit (1...d5 2.c4) or the Indian defences (1...Nf6), but there is one thing the three moves have in common: Black would like to prevent 2.e4. In addition, in the Dutch ...Nf6 is intended to follow, which will further increase the control over this important central square.

The Stonewall Attack in 60 Minutes
The Stonewall Attack (d4 followed by e3 and possibly f4) is an old-fashioned opening, almost forgotten, not thought to give White any advantage at all. Yet it still packs a punch and is not so easy to defend against. It is especially good for club players

The Beliavsky Plan vs. the Stonewall Dutch
You exchange the bishop on f4 to open the g-file (gxf4) and double rooks there. Black will protect his weakness on this file with all his forces. You transfer your pieces to the other side, create a new weakness there, and the opponent will be helpless

by Erwin l'Ami
On some occasions it would yield you a perfect win, on others it could cause you “shameful” defeats. This DVD is intended in the first line to offer strategical guidance for Black, based on the examination of the most typical structures.

Safe and active with the Dutch Stonewall
The popular Stonewall with f5, e6, d5 and c6 earned its name because in practice it turned out to be a legendary defensive weapon. But if you play the setup correctly (that means with ...b6, ...Bb7 etc.), you can also quickly become active.
