Dutch Stonewall Miniature

I played a pleasant stonewall game this afternoon that I thought I would include here since it demonstrates two ideas that I often use in the dutch in general- the first being the maneuver Qd8-e8-h4, and the second being the piercing “dutch-lance” f5-f4. My opponent makes a few blunders (no miniature exists without them) and allows for a quick enveloping attack to coalesce on the king-side. I have won countless blitz games with these straightforward ideas in tandem, though this game I think is technically a “rapid” game.
