This video explores thematic moves in the modern Dutch Stonewall defence. The Stonewall formation is reached with pawns on c6/d5/e6/f5, with Bd6, and Knights on f6 + d7. Black re-positions the f6 Knight to e4 and, after castling 0-0, lifts the Rook with Rf6 to h3, intending Bxh2 and Qh5!! To avoid anti-Dutch lines and gambits, and to let White show their opening plans, f5 is not played until move 5.
