    Empire Chess – Vol 17

    Stonewall Defense - Sample Position

     

    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. Even if you aren’t crazy about playing the Stonewall Defense against every set-up by white in the Queen Pawn opening systems, the Stonewall Defense is exceptionally versatile and very easy to transpose to from various chess openings for black against 1. d4, 1. c4, 1. Nf3, etc.. The validity of the Stonewall Defense as an effective opening choice at the highest levels in chess is reinforced by the fact that it has been frequently employed by countless Grandmasters, including current World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand and former World Champions Vladimir Kramnik, Mikhail Botvinnik, and Vassily Smyslov! If you are looking for a reliable weapon for black against 1. d4 where you can transfer the weight of the struggle to the middlegame, the Stonewall Defense will be a great addition to your opening repertoire.

     

    About Grandmaster Eugene Perlshteyn

    GM Eugene Perelshteyn

     

    Grandmaster Eugene Perelshteyn is an extremely experienced chess trainer who has employed the Stonewall Defense with consistent success at the GM level. From a superficial glance, the Stonewall Defense may appear very simple (place your pawns on the light squares, trade your light-squared bishop or activate it via ..b6 and ..Ba6, and don’t let white play e4) – GM Perelshteyn is quick to point out common tactical and positional pitfalls. The Stonewall Defense also has an undeserved reputation for being a very drawish, passive opening – but GM Perelshteyn presents multiple attacking patterns in the center and kingside for black that can destroy any opponent with the white pieces! This chess DVD will improve your opening play with black and provide you with the knowledge to stomp white with the Stonewall Defense!

    • E-DVD FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 56 - Win with 1...d6 Part 1
      The first of two videos on systems with 1...d6, this one based on the flexible Czech System (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6).

      The Czech System introduces a fascinating area of opening play, where with well-timed counter-measures Black aims to destabilize the whole White set-up. The Czech is much less susceptible to direct attack than a regular Pirc Defense.
