    I love playing the CB at blitz but I have poor results with it - here is a rare win.

    It looks rather stonewally 😀

    I guess the idea of solidifying the centre and then attacking on the
    king-side is similar to the Stonewall but the pawn chain is completely different.
    Pawns on QB4, Q3 and K4 rather than QB3, Q4, K3.
    Which swaps the good and bad bishops!
    (Although my bishops are normally both bad! 😕 )

    OK i understand, i play the stonewall in blitz not very successfully but it suits my one dimensional approach. One guy even complained that he felt ashamed after being caught out with the stonewall.
