Black must play exact in the Staunton, true. But if he knows some theory (or at least has some feeling for the position), White has for sure the worse side of the game.

If somebody plays me 2.e4 I am very, very glad. In internet games I get often the Staunton and I score over 85 % against it. The Staunton is the best thing, White can do for a Dutch-player.

Well, as we're mentioning old books probably out of print Wink - my first source on the Dutch Defense was  by Christiansen & Silman from 1989, it also covers the entire DD, (except for the Krause - which is probably only mentioned in Kaissiber) in 217 pages, single columned but still not too space wasting. Dated of course, but still a good introduction to the DD as a whole...

Their verdict on the Staunton: [it] 'offers equality at best. Black has excellent chances of scoring a win.' - this may not be what Staunton aficionados want to hear, but I think it's a concise suming up of how Dutch aficionados feel! Cheesy

Who's up for a count of posts where MnB makes reference to Schwarz?

I had an uncanny feeling that Messrs Taimanov and Schwarz would get a mention in this thread ...  Wink

Perhaps clairvoyance is one of my God-like powers? Shocked

Yes. The last neutral authors were Taimanov (12 pages in his 1980 book) and Schwarz (45 pages in his 1964 book). I also recall Meulders writing some surveys in NIC yearbooks, but he did not trust White's play either.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Many if not all of the recent books on the Dutch has a section on the Staunton gambit. They're always written from black's perspective, though.
  

Don't check me with no lightweight stuff.

Hi all,

I am looking for resources on Staunton gambit (1.d4 f5 2 e4).  Can anyone recommend good books, CDs, analyses on the web etc dealing with this variation?
