Tim Taylor calls it the Knezevic variation in his White repertoire book against the King's Indian and Grunfeld.

Thanks for the info!  I think I'll dub the line with 6.Qa3 the "Buenos Aires" variation, since that's where the 1939 Olympiad took place

I'm not sure it has a name other than Grunfeld with e3.

I have 6. .. Nc6 as first played by Honfi against Kotov in 1966, but 6. Qa3 dates back to the 1939 Olympiad, being played by Porath against De Groot.

What is this variation called?  What's the oldest example with it?  365chess.com indicates Ben Finegold as the player who plays it most.  However online chess-base indicates that Czech GM Jansa played 6...Nc6 as long ago as 1973
