An easy Plan vs. the Stonewall System!
Young, inexperienced players often have problems in closed positions, because in positions where pawn chains dominate, you have to know the plans.So when I was a strong grandmaster, I was always a bit afraid of Stonewall positions in the Dutch System.But one day my friend Aleksander Beliavsky took me aside and showed me a new idea for white: you exchange the bishop on f4 to open the g-line (gxf4) and double the rooks there.Black will defend his weaknesses on this line with all his power.Since White has space advantage, he now transfers his pieces to the other wing and creates new weaknesses - and the opponent is helpless.Beliavsky's brilliant match against Artur Jussupov is a fantastic and instructive example of this great plan.

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.=> More products: Dutch Defence
