Dutch defense is a great attacking opening choice where black prepares king's side attack from move one. In order to avoid complication in the center black usually locks it up early in the game. Dutch was never a super popular opening especially on the top level. Nevertheless, many strong players including Alexander Alekhine, Bent Larsen and Paul Morphy used this opening with a great success. Currently, Hikaru Nakamura is the only top-10 player that uses Dutch on regular basis. If you are a club player, looking for a new active opening choice, the Dutch may be exactly what you need.
