You might say that there are a few of those around; Moskalenko, Ulibin, Agdestein, Karlsson, to mention a few of the Dutch Stonewall’s active practitioners. However, today I will present you with a game by one of it’s most stubborn fans, Evgeny Gleizerov. I have happened to sit along him many a time at different tournaments and it seems to me that he always plays the Stonewall and… that he always wins. I like to learn chess through intense study of one player or one theme at a time. When I was striving to become a Grand Master I realized that my weakness was endgames and strategical play so I spent many months studying players like Rubinstein, Valery Salov and Epishin. I learned a lot. In the coming week I will give an example of how this kind of study might look, through the games of Gleizerov. Later this summer I will give a more thorough course on the Stonewall under “coaching”.
