Wow, I've never faced the Leningrad Dutch, but I'll be sure to remember h4
Thank you very much
Learned one thing for sure ... Naka will Rock Ya ! Thanks Eugene for sharing this awesome game / concept against the Lenningrad Dutch!
Really good video and fine game by Nakamura!
I have to agree with Quaitemes though, since Nakamura`s opponent didn`t
treat the line the way he was supposed to. The Dutch is a rarety these days
especially on top level, so one should be really well versed in it in order to
have a good counter play. Like the great ones from the past....
I am sure that the Dutch wouldn`t be so `straight forward` and forced with
the black pieces in the hands of Botvinnik, eg.
@ 13:14... Re7+ is a blunder.
this is a line
Yes, Naka is a genious, I admire him very much. But Eugene seems to portray this as if the Dutch is a forced win for white. Any decent Dutch player knows that in this move order, without g3, you play 3...d6 instead of g6. In this way early h4 stuff does not work because black has not played g6, and black can either play e6 with a classical dutch, or g6 later and transpose into the mainline Leningrad.
4. h4 is a very old idea, and no player of the Dutch should be dumb enough to walk into it. Be versatile, and be able to play classical Dutch's or just play d6 and transpose later.
I don't think I'll even bother with the Dutch after seeing this.
Nice to see an American representing too.
Thank you Eugene. A very nice display of the power of active pieces and attack over material concerns.
A very interesting line....similar to Dzindzi's method of play against the Dutch. A great lecture...thank you!
Very good video, especially as it was made underwater!
I've seen a couple of Nakamura's games now and the guy is just a genius, that is the sort of chess that inspires people to keep playing....THNX
what a genius line! i play the dutch pretty often, and i've never thought of that...
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
GM Perelshteyn introduces a very aggressive approach to the Leningrad Dutch, presenting a devastating game by U.S. #2 Hikaru Nakamura. Along the way, Perelshteyn clearly explains the chess basis for white's aggression, and the type of play that is likely to result. You will gain a new sense of how to challenge opponents with creative play from the opening, as well as a new weapon against the Dutch.
