    LOL, counterfiters are bound to produce a copy line and flood the market with imitations! 😛

    Second game missed a mate a move earlier!

    I'm not sure if the second game can be classified as a stonewall opening.

    The game was amusing, look at that pawn on g3 I didn't know they made them that big.

    thats nothing my illustrious friend, here I miss a mate in nine after whites blunder Nxd5, see if anyone can get it, i end up missing mate myself I think and getting mated instead. I swear I never saw that queen! Why I play chess I cannot say, i have no talent for it.

    that bishop is an excellent defensive piece, unorthodox I know, but pure genius any ordinary player would never think of it. 😛

    PBfromfics, dude! you legend! awesome games. rook lifts hmmmm, how cunning! Against 1....Nf6 you don't play e3 but 2.Nbd2 is that in case of ...g6 so that you can play an immediate e4 getting into some line of Pirc defense? I always have trouble against Kingside Fianchetto with stonewall and don't really know how to handle it, many times the computer also will play Nc6 and e5 which can be quite annoying, here I am usually forced into an early Nf3 before I can get my pawn to f4, but I like it because its intuitive 🙁

    1.d4 Nf6 2.e3 d6 followed by a quick e5 is a system I use with black.

    The Stonewall is nice, but it works best with a black pawn on d5.
    Once the d pawn moves to d5, White gets that stonewall grip on the e5 square (d4 pawn/f4 pawn/Ng1-f3-e5). That outpost is a key to a good stonewall.

    1.d4 Nf6 2.Nd2 is fun to play around with, but not the best move either. Black has a lot of replies (2. ... c5 for instance), where you end up playing an offbeat queen's pawn opening. White gets a good playable game in all variations, but most likely not much advantage.

    1.d4 Nf6 2.Nd2 can be followed by a quick e4, so it encourages black to play d5 (to prevent e4). 1. d4 Nf6 2.Nd2 d5 3.e3 is a logical course, which can get right back into stonewall structures. Again, a good stonewall needs that black pawn on d5!

    On 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nd2 g6 (or d6) 3.e4 is a possibility.

    1.d4 Nf6 2.Nd2 g6 3.e4 d6 4.f4 {or 4.Nf3 for solidity} Bg7 5.Nf3 0-0 6.Bd3



    It's similar to an Austrian Attack. White can support his center with c3, lunge forward with an e5 push, or just sit on the space for a while and see what develops.

    If 2.Nd2 takes a beating, you can always try 2.Nf3.
    Just mix it up a little and see what works.

    Why wait until the 5th move to make your winning move f4!
