Ah right, thanks, that looks like an interesting and unusual way of handling the Stonewall.

In Sedlak's recent book the approach of L'Ami is discussed in detail.

Out of interest, what specifically is it about l'Ami's approach that makes it distinctive?

The main element is leaving out c6, going for a fianchetto with b6 Bb7 and taking back on d5 with the knight.

In fact I played in 2005 already such scheme successfully see below but L'Ami shows it is possible to play against many other different white setups.

In Sedlak's recent book the approach of L'Ami is discussed in detail. It looks interesting and could provide a solution for some of the problems arising in the old c6 lines (I am referring to Bf4 and Nh3 systems). For sure I will have a look at it more closely once we can get back to play on the board chess as for online chess you better play crap and know this crap very well.

I notice L'Ami scored +5, =1, -2 with it (standard games only) in the years 2016-2019 but his wins were against much weaker opponents. Anyway I couldn't find a quick refutation anywhere so it is definitely worth checking more closely.

Any comments on this DVD? Today is ChessBase Discount Day (25%) and I am thinking of buying it.

I personally liked this DVD a lot, but have there been any significant developments since publication, particularly in the 1.d4 f5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 e6 4.c4 d5 5.Nf3 Bd6 6.c4 0-0 and 5.Nh3 lines?
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
