Is this a good opening to learn and play for black?

But bad players play bad openings.

Even worse: bad players play good openings, badly.

In the hands of a player versed in its intricacies - yes, it's good.

I like playing the Stonewall Attack from the white side on occasion. I will
only uncork it on a much weaker player because its objective is too
transparent and monolithic. Attempting it against a good player who
understands the opening will almost always leave white with a cramped and
unenergetic position.

And good players play bad openings, greatly.

I forgot which Dvoretsky book has it but there is excellent analysis
and study on the stonewall by Kramnik in one of his books. The
stonewall may be primitive but it is tough to crack.



It's "Positional Play". Kramnik analyses the stonewall with Nf3 and Igor
Khenkin analyses some other variations, especially with Nh3
