A New Way to Fight the Stonewall, Classical, Leningrad, and Fianchetto Variations of a Popular Chess Opening.
The Last Laugh
Dutch Defense players often have the smug satisfaction of knowing their opening better than their opponents. But if you play the Dangerfield Attack, the joke will be on Black!
Like the American comic icon Rodney Dangerfield, those who use an early Bf4 against the Dutch "get no respect."Dutch Defense manuals frequently dismiss it, but then they ignore White's best continuation, often assuming the first player will follow up with a meek London System setup.
Rudel presents an entirely new way to play Bf4 against the Dutch. This attack is a plug-and-play solution for those opening 1.d4. All standard Dutch Defense formations are covered, including Q-side fianchetto defenses and the deferred Leningrad.
NOTE: This book is essentially the anti-Dutch segment from Rudel's much larger book, "Fight the King's Indian, Grünfeld, and Dutch Defenses with Zuka". This smaller book has been released concurrently specifically (and solely!) for those who are satisfied with their lines against ...g6 and only want a new response to the Dutch.
