For which color?   Wink


Exactly.  You could compare playing this defense to discharging a rusty musket.  It may slaughter your enemy, but it could just as well blow up in your face.  That's perhaps less true of the Stonewall, but even there Black takes big strategic risks.

But more on topic, I wonder what Black's "dangerous weapons" are supposed to be, given the gradualist character of Black's play in this system.  Hmm, let me guess: Leningrad with 9...Nc6 will be among them.  But what in the Stonewall?

White's Dangerous Weapon #1?  The Staunton Gambit, of course.  I wonder if they'll cover it.

Yusupov once said that “The problem with the Dutch Defence is that later in many positions the best move would be ...f5-f7” but he is surely wrong.

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations
