Ray Haines wins a Stonewall Attack which transposes to a Bird's Opening. White hid in his castle behind a stonewall with 6.f4 until his forces were ready. He could have lowered the drawbridge faster and attacked with 6.e4. By the time he played 15.e4, his stonewall had cracks in it that Black failed to find. Then White attacked and had two ways to mate.
