Dutch "Winawer" Question To avoid French complication I choose Nc3 after 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5, which may be followed by Winawer variation of the French defense.

When learning Dutch defense, I came up with similar variation, which is:
1. d4 f5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. Bg5!

I have tried to fight this with:
3. ... e7-e6 4. e2-e4 fxe4 5. Nxe4 d7-d5?!

The following forced moves didn't happen in my game but after a lot of thinking I think the resulting end game position is a definite win for White:

6. NxN g7xN 7. Qh5+ Ke7 8. Bg5xf6 KxB 9. Qh4+ Kg7 10. QxQ Bb4+ 11. c2-c3 Bxc3+ 12. b2xB RxQ 13. Kd2

So I stop playing 5. ... d5?

Do you think that d5 is a blunder?

indiana-jay 5. ... d5 is a blunder. The normal 5. ... Be7 is much better.

Thank you bogg. I will use Be7 then... :))

And in 2 of my games, I came up with positions similar to KI, but I like it better than KI. I guess white should have been mad allowing black to achieve that hehehe... I checked also somewhere that in recent tournaments, black has much success with Dutch defense??!

And, it seems that the likely end game positions are not too complicated for my level (due to it's closed nature).
