|(Queen's Pawn Opening)|
THE DUTCH DEFENCE
Black advances his (her) King's Bishop's
Pawn before KKt development to control White's K4(e4) -
a move appealing to attacking players!
The Dutch is less suitable for beginners
(as this non-developing move exposes Black's king) although it gives White
little choice except to take the normal course of the opening (or else play
the Staunton Gambit).
