My decision to switch from bullet chess to blitz chess at chess.com continues to pay dividends. My rating has gone up to 1480. I play a lot of the Stonewall Attack when I play white. This opening is easy-to-learn and use, and not that hard to play against. But I score a lot of points in that opening. Tonight my opponent played that opening against me when I had the black pieces. Though the game was nearly even, the other side lost 2 pawns in a stonewall v. stonewall ending, and I won. When I play the black pieces, I play the Dutch Stonewall (usually transposing there from a Semi-Slav). Against 1 e4 I play the Phiilidor or the Pirc. I find most of my opponents at this level do not play the sharp anti-Pirc lines like the Austrian Attack.
