The Leningrad Dutch Defence
By Svitlana Demchenko
The Leningrad Dutch Defence is a dynamic and aggressive opening choice for Black, perfect for players who want to add some adventure and spice to their repertoire. Unlike its relative, the Stonewall Dutch (...f5-e6-d5), the Leningrad Dutch setup (...f5-g6-d6) is more flexible and more risky, having similarities with the double-edged King's Indian Defence. This course covers the Leningrad Dutch as a 3-in-1 weapon, as it can be used against many common first moves: 1. d4, 1. c4 and 1. Nf3. The course includes in-depth theory, opening disasters for both sides, interactive tactical exercises, model games, and practice positions!
