Excellent video.my rating is around 1500.right now am playing a1700+player?am using these ideas and he is in trouble?he has to accept a draw or loose?This opening is good for black.
I play the Dutch,learned some things but wow! the game that NoRematch posted in the comments would be horrible to play as black,horrible bishops, horrible pieces in general(rook), white controls the c file,white with the initiative and black playing to 68 moves for a draw(and having to play precisely for that many move which I could never do!) Maybe I should look at the Grunfeld or Triangle.
Excellent opening theory! Can't wait to try it...I do imagine that the opening of a game sets the tone, mood strategy/tactics of the rest of the game...could be wrong though! :-)
Hi this looks interesting although i play caro kann is there any way you can get into this with the caro kann
also this looks sort of risky by attacking the kingside after you castled or is that just me
Absolutely fantastic stuff. Thank for explaining this so well.
The grand master game was also very interesting.
So glad to see an opening for black, which is what I play alot. Thanks for the video and look forward to watching more about the Stonewall!
I didn't realize Radjabov was a Stonewaller too. I think of him as a King's Indian Defense player.
Here are two of the games referred to in the video:
Good title for an opening! I can't wait to try it. Also can't wait to watch the next two videos. Wish there could be a game about someone doing the stonewall opening.
I loved the video but I wish you had included a complete game, so we could see White and Black's whole strategy, all the way to the endgame.
Looking fwd to parts II ans III, please include some complete games!
very nice. I liked your review in the ende also a lot.
In future lectures can you cover what happens if White tries for f2-f3 and e2-e4 pawn break against the Stonewall. I always find this annoying.
@bmatan007: that will be the next video in the series (with the knight on f3, not h3).
i like how they do the arrow things. it kind of helps. thanks! (:
I look forward to your next video. Thanks.
nice vid. thanks gm.
