Grünfeld Fianchetto, 10.Nh4!?
Recently I came across the following:
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.g3 d5 5.cxd5 Nxd5 6.Bg2 Nb6 7.Nc3 Nc6 8.e3 O-O 9.O-O Re8 (a main line), and now 10.Nh4!? (with the idea 11.f4, it seems).

Gruenfeld repertoire against all 1.d4 systems
I am familiar with The Kaufman Repertoire, but which other printed books detail a repertoire for Black against all the 1.d4 systems (i.e. not only 2.c4) that is based around the Gruenfeld?

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?
