The Beliavsky Plan against the Stonewall Dutch

Young, inexperienced players usually have stress facing closed positions, since powerful pawn chains always demand knowledge of special and precise plans. I remember that, even when already being a strong GM, I always was a bit afraid of the Dutch Stonewall. One day my friend Aleksander Beliavsky took me aside to reveal his new idea for White: 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. Then, as you have more space, you transfer your pieces to the other side, create a new weakness there, and the opponent will be helpless. Beliavsky's splendid game against Artur Jussupov is a fantastic educational 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.
