      The Stonewall Defense is an extremely effective chess opening for black against 1. d4 – representing a solid system that is very difficult for white to crack. The Stonewall Defense involves black placing pawns on the light squares d5, e6, and f5 to establish an iron grip on the center, specifically restricting a potential breakthrough by white involving an e4 push.

    • FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 47 - Sidestep
      As played by Nigel Short against Garry Kasparov - 1.d4 d6 2.Nf3 Bg4 is a relatively new system with some high-class adherents. Completely sound, it leads to dynamic and unbalanced middlegames. The defense has the considerable merit of sidestepping standard theory, and is a favorite of Anand and Speelman. GM James Plaskett analyses Black's best plans against all possible White set-ups.
