📥 Download the PGN of the Stonewall Attack chess opening from this blog-post –

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares one of the easiest chess openings to learn for beginners. At the same time, it’s a powerful chess opening for White after 1.d4.

It is the Stonewall Attack which is characterized by White playing their pawns to d4, e3, Bd3, Nd2, and then playing pawns to c3 and then f4. The Stonewall is a system where White heads for a very specific pawn formation, rather than trying to memorize long lines of different variations. White puts up the Stonewall formation regardless of how Black chooses to defend against it.

Watch the video lesson to learn the logical reasoning behind the moves, White’s main idea in this opening, middlegame plans, and a deadly trap that wins the game in just 12 moves!

  2. Stop , mentioning Orange Ogres' name ! He's disgrace to society! ty

  3. Thank you so much for sharing man. Worth it to subscribe this channel. After watching on your chess strategy, my chess skills is a little bit more improvement. Appreciated. Wish successful!

  4. This works against king's Indian?

  5. What I do against the Stonewall is castle, play b6 and the Ba6. (Leaving out castling leaves one open to the fork with Qa4+.) If I am able to exchange the white squared bishop then White's attack loses a lot of steam and he is left with a dark squared bishop that will take a while to find something useful to do.

  6. Could you make video about the italian game ( white – variations and ideas) and about the london (with white)? And finally one video for an easy (for begginers) openning for the blacks? thank you
