2 games from TWIC 956 for 1.d4 players.

Game 1 Dutch Stonewall
The Nh3+Bf4 method is a nice way to deal with the solid Stonewall. Black went a bit far on the kingside in an ambitious attempt to create kingside chances and was severely dealt with.

Game 2 Benko Gambit g3
The Benko Gambit is a popular defence which requires concrete handling. The 8.g3 Bg7 9.Bg2 line is one such method and now 9…Nfd7!? is popular. White achieved nothing special in the feature game but got chances when black tried too hard and went astray in complex play.
