♕ ARTICLE: www.onlinechesslessons.net ♕ facebook.com ♕ twitter.com In part 2 of the Stonewall Attack Chess Beginner Series, I review a few black set-ups that could cause problems for white. The first segment of the video is covers a very aggressive black move order with a rapid d5, c5, and nc6 – tending to result in a Reversed Queen Gambit type position. I recommend that white does not stubbornly continue with the Stonewall against this set-up, but rather adapts the plan towards grabbing that c5 pawn and trying to hold on to it. In the second half of this video, I go over the King’s Indian Defense and how white should adapt to this scheme for the black pieces. It is simply unreasonable to play the Stonewall against the King’s Indian, as black will inevitably achieve the e5 break and a very comfortable position in the center. Moreover, the kingside fianchetto in this opening is extremely difficult to attack head-on – thus white needs to change plans with an open mind against the King’s Indian Defense. My recommendation is to play the Blackburne-Zukertort Opening, involving a similar pawn structure with the inclusion of a queenside fianchetto to combat the long a1-h8 diagonal.
