  fredthebear: 4.Ne2 and 5.f3 are not a feature of the typical Stonewall Attack, but 3...Bg4 threatened to capture the White queen. When safe to do so, the normal 4.f4 preparing 5.Nf3 is better (more centralized). The game continues in somewhat odd (Ng3, h4, etc.) fashion.

Eventually, White makes use of a pin on the half-open g-file to pressure the kingside, but erroneously releases the pressure with the exchange sequence beginning 32.QxRf7+. This mistake throws water on the fire, significantly easing Black's problems by trading off three like pieces each.

Just prior to the exchange sequence, neither color seemed to know what to do with their queenside rooks. As it turns out, the queenside rooks dicker to a draw.

  Straclonoor: In opening black could take big advantage after 10....cxd4 Best line is

Analysis by Stockfish 150519 64 POPCNT:

-+ (-3.85): 10...cxd4 11.Rh3 h6 12.Ne2 Bc5 13.Nxd4 Bxd4 14.cxd4 Qxd4 15.Be3 Qe5 16.Qc2 Rd8 17.Nd2 0-0 18.a3 Nd4 19.Qc3 Bxe4 20.Bxe4 Nxe4 21.Bxd4 Rxd4 22.Nf3 Nxc3+ 23.Nxe5 Nd5 24.Nd3 Rc8 25.Rc1 Rxc1+ 26.Nxc1 Nf4 27.Rg3 Kh7 28.b4

Obvious, that 11.cxd4 Qxd4 gives full domination for black.
