        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. Smile

    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! Wink

    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
