I have an interesting way to play this position. I assume that I am playing KIA with colors reversed. You will feel better of your winning chances this way. Though we need to careful of not thinking that we already have advantage. We do not. Black is just equal but he can outplay his opponent.

An option:

Play d5,c5,b6, double fianchetto, Nc6 and this's the point: Nfd7 and after this ...e5! (you have three pieces looking after e5) you will open the center and the fianchettoed bishops were more valued than white's ( that is what Weeramantry says about fianchettoed bishops).

That seems easy enough. Correct me if I am mistaken.... blacks idea is to develop naturally, put rooks actively on e-file and another file and with the plan of moving the bishop and push e5.

People keep telling me that basic opening reference books are obsolete ...

One well-respected type of approach for Black can be seen in games like these:

Some sort of Colle

Hi, let me first say that this is a very good forum. I have read many posts but haven't registered until now!!!

I play the Grunfeld but many times white delays c4 in order to play c3 as a response to ...c5 by black.

As a Grunfeld player how should I play? I always feel like d5 is wrong with g6, Bg7.

For instance the following variation is something I have met a number of times:

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Bf4 Bg7 4.h3 0-0 5.e3 c5 6.c3

All black moves by me where made without any knowledge of how to play this so you are free to suggest any other moves you like better.

Please give me some suggestions of how to play against this.
