Dutch Boy Openings

Named by Manus Hand, Dutch Boy openings involve F Kie-HEL and A Ber-Kie. This move applies pressure to the North Sea (in combination with a French fleet in the Channel) but is a rather poor substitute for F Kie-Den. The advantage is that if France is to make the attack on the North Sea, Germany may occupy Denmark with an army rather than a fleet, giving him immediate convoy possibilities. The Dutch Boy is also useful in combination with a Russian Northern System opening. With a Russian army in St. Petersburg after Spring of 1901, and with pressure on England's North Sea fleet, the only sure English build in Norway must be taken by vacating the North Sea, and Germany can take advantage of this by HEL-NTH, while still covering Holland and Denmark with armies.
