Just looking at the line that Dembo recommends in her book, "Play the Grunfeld", against the 8.Rb1 Exchange variation.  Beginning with 7 Nf3 c5 8 Rb1 0-0 9 Be2 b6 instead of 10 0-0, white may play 10 ...

Grunfeld via 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nf3 d5.

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?

How to make a draw against the Grünfeld?
Hi friends,
as as 1.e4-player I recently toyed with 1.d4 and 1.c4 in my classical tournament games with very decent results. In fact I only played this moves when I was somewhat sure that my oppo...

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?

Long-term weapon against Grunfeld?
The interesting thing about the Grunfeld is that it is not immediately clear what the "main line" is. For example, in the Nimzo or Queen's Indian one can say, specialise in 4. e3 and 4. g3 respectivel...

Queen vs. 3 minors in the Grunfeld
I was wondering what do others think of the rather typical Grunfeld situation of a queen vs 3 minor pieces. In particular I am thinking of the line: [pgn][Event "?"]
[Site "?"]
[Date ...|/pgn]
Recently I have been searching for a secondary line against the Grunfeld (which is also my main defence as Black) and so far I have been looking at this 5.Qa4+ line. From the gam
