What's the difference between regrouping and redeploying and rearranging the pieces?
as in:
I should regroup my pieces
or
I should double rooks on the d-file or regroup my knight [..]
or
I can regroup my minor pieces towards my target.

White has acquired a better pawn-structure, in view of the weak isolated black d5-pawn. On the other hand, Black has
gained the bishop-pair, retaining dynamic equality.
Means Bishop-pair neutralizes worse pawn structure?

Re: Dutch defence

I don't agree that it's good only at the club level. I witnessed at least FM who played it in an open tournament, and top GMs have played it. I found two games in Mega database 2011 (I still use the old DB)
