A System for White Vs the Stonewall Dutch – GM Damian Lemos (iChess Club)

Dutch Stonewall Chess OpeningThe Stonewall Dutch (see the diagram on the left) can be reached through a number of move orders, but a common way is 1.d4 f5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 e6 4.c4 d5 5.Nf3 c6 6.0-0 Bd6.

By playing 1…f5, Black is making an effort to claim the e4 square right away. At the same time, this move weakens Black’s kingside. It’s an aggressive and unbalanced effort from Black, and as such this opening often ends up with decisive results – it has a low percentage of draws.

The Dutch Defense isn’t often seen at the highest level, but a number of top players have used it in their careers, including Alexander Alekhine, Bent Larsen, Paul Morphy, Miguel Najdorf, Mikhail Botvinnik and David Bronstein.

In this exclusive iChess Club video, Grandmaster Damian Lemos explores this attacking opening and provides a system that White can play against it.
