Leningrad rampage
Compiled by Morphized
--*--

The Leningrad dutch, in a sense, is the older brother of the King's indian. Hoping to save a move by going f5 before playing Nf6, black by doing so loses a bit of flexibility weakens his position. This imbalance makes up for many exciting games, where white will usually be blown off the board if he doesn't attempt to exploit black's weaknesses.

A few mistakes completely killed white
P Aguirre vs Pelikan, 1957
(A87) Dutch, Leningrad, Main Variation, 33 moves, 0-1

agressive play + Exchange sac by a Leningrad legend

Leningrad brillancy with king hunt

Quick destruction after white's somewhat passive setup

Typical scenario: white fails to create play and gets killed

White neglects developement and gets completely tied up

Dream position where black is very active during the whole game

Game where white never got anywhere and lost to a deadly attack

Black sacs an exc. and gets an endgame where W's R are dummies

Black's bishops are monsters and have a decisive role

Black uses his space advantage and active pieces to good effect
Martinovsky vs T Taylor, 1976

Case of white's play being too tame to combat the Leningrad
