Game 1: This game covers the old main line with 8. Re1 and demonstrates black´s best response - 8. ...Ne4 - immediately stopping white from opening the center with 9. e4 and offering to exchange a pair of knights which will certainly help black who has less space. GM Williams continues very actively and is quick to explain an incredibly important rule in the Classical Dutch - if your opponent is able to break the center with e4, black should respond immediately with ...e5 to counter in the center. With the thematic 11. ...e5 in the game black achieved dynamic equality, and with the attentive 13. ...Be4 black could already claim an advantage from the opening. Black´s subsequent play is a perfect example of how to proceed actively and aggressively in a common type of middlegame in the Classical Dutch, and with the excellent tactical idea 20. ...Nf3 - black had achieved a very dangerous attack on white´s king.

Game 2: This game covers the new main line with the solid 8. b3 where white aims to fianchetto his dark-squared bishop and possibly gain space in the future on the queenside with a3 and b4. After 12. e4 black is tactically unable to thematically respond with 12. ...e5 - bringing us to another very important rule in the Classical Dutch: If you are unable to immediately respond to white´s e4 break with ...e5, you should NOT capture the pawn with fxe4 - but rather push your pawn to f4! Although GM Williams went on to lose this game, his position out of the opening was very good as he had obtained dangerous, long-term attacking chances against white´s king.
