Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-07  choppi: White is playing a system which now-adays is called the 'Stonewall Attack'. The opening move is almost always 1.d4 d5

In the Stonewall Attack, White does not play the move which occurs in all other versions of 1.d4 openings: c4

Instead he sometimes plays c3.
In this game, White plays c3 on move five.
This is done 'as needed' and here it is needed to maintain White's light-squared Bishop on the diagonal leading to h7.

Andrew Soltis wrote a book on this opening: The Stonewall Attack. I have never seen it and would very much like to buy a copy if anyone has one to sell.
Thank you

  Penguincw: The final position reminded me of the final position of the famous opera game ( Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 ).
