Can somebody give me an opinion about the quality?

Is the Grunfeld a poor opening for winning chances
I've played a lot of blitz with the Grunfeld lately and I enjoy the positions but they seem a lot more defined than with the NID/QID where you get a ton of pawn breaks and the game is closed longer. <...

Good book explaining the Bf4 Line vs Gruenfeld?
Is there any good repertoire book explaining in some detail, from White's point of view, the Bf4 (before or after Nf3) line vs the Gruenfeld?

Grünfeld Fianchetto, 10.Nh4!?

Reply to White's 3.d5 pawn advance
Hi All,
In the Grunfeld defence, what happens if White plays 3.d5 after 1.d4,Nf6, 2.c4,g6 ?  Doesn't the pawn advance cramp up Black's position?
