The Dutch Defense: The Ultimate Guide with GM Simon Williams

FB ads The Killer Dutch 1200x1200px 1

The Classical Dutch Defense is a fantastic defense system against 1. d4 that is guaranteed to catch your opponent by surprise.

The main lines of the Dutch Defense include the Leningrad Dutch with an early kingside fianchetto, and the Dutch Stonewall Defense with a closed center and pawns on f5, e6, and d5.

However, in the Classical Dutch Defense, Black strives to rapidly challenge White for control of the center with moves like f5, e6, and later d6 and e5 – building a dynamic pawn wall that puts strong pressure on white.

Grandmaster Simon Williams is the world’s leading expert on the Classical Dutch Defense, and the British GM is certainly not shy about sharing his secrets in this premium 6 hour DVD.

He analyzes victories and defeats in the Classical Dutch so that the viewer understands the keys to success and how to avoid common positional and tactical pitfalls.
