Reverse Stonewall

The Reverse Stonewall is a White opening system where White plays both d4 and f4, taking full control over the e5 square. It is the reverse of the Black opening in the Dutch Defence, Stonewall Defence (Black plays f5 and d5 to control the e4 square). It is slow and cumbersome, but playable and hard for Black to crack.
