Stonewall Attack – Chess Openings for Beginners – Part 2 – Zukertort System

Posted by on Feb 28, 2013 in Chess Tactics Videos | 24 comments

♕ 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.

The Reti Opening is a very flexible chess opening that can transpire into other common openings for white. Instead of controlling the center with pawns, white looks to use his minor pieces to put pressure on the center.
