Hi guys!
Can someone give me any suggestions how to play against d4-c3-ce setup as a gruenfeld player? I didnt found anything good in Kaufman's book. Mybe there are better sources?

Regards



There is a book by Quality Chess Grandmaster Repertoire 11 - Beating 1.d4 Sidelines just about to be released on Nov. 9th, dealing with all the 1.d4 sidlelines like the colle(d4 c3 and e3).  I would highly recommend it as it is written again by Boris Avrukh one of the best chess authors today on openings, plus as a bonus he is a Grunfeld player, and has two incredible books on that opening.  So I am sure he will give a good line to deal with the line you mentioned. 

Also there is Fighting the Anti-Kings Indains by Dembo Everymanchess

1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. e3 Bg7 4. Bd3 O-O 5. O-O d6 6. c3 c5  ( ...c5 feels like a Grunfeld move)

Which I got from the book.  Again you would have to get this book to see how to deal with different set-ups, like b3 and Bb2 and many other ways white plays after they set up their pawns.  I have Dembo's book and it is good, But I am really looking forward to GM11, I think the lines will be very interesting.  Like for instance Ne4 against the Tromp.  Of course I like sharp openings, either way those are the two books I know of.

Here is a link to the Book I mentioned

Good luck!

Well, if we're assuming ...g6 and ...d5, you could have something like 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. e3 g6 4. Bd3 Bg7 5. Nbd2 0-0 6. 0-0 Nbd7 7. e4 (7. c3 e5 8. de Ng4) de 8. Nxe4 Nxe4 9. Bxe4 c5 (with a bit of a threat) 10. c3 Nf6 (10...Qc7 11. Qe2 cd 12. Nxd4 a6 13. Re1 Nc5 14. Bc2 Bd7 15. Nf3 e5 = Pachman) 11. Bc2 cd 12. Nxd4 (= Nunn).
