Chess Openings: Grunfeld Defense



El video:

The Grunfeld Defense is one of the most popular chess defenses against the d4 opening from white. Black looks to play a hypermodern defense by allowing white to control the center of the board and counterattack the center with this minor pieces. White much be careful and defend properly or his center control will vanish. White also has the option to decline and continue with a more aggressive line.

'I don't play like Kasparov, he's a little better than I am.' LOL!

(d4 - Nf6 / c4 - g6 / Nc3 - d5) and from here another good variation is (Qa4+ - Bd7 / Qb3 - dxc4 / Qxc4)

when black moves his pawn up to c5, why doesnt white just take it, aside from a potential queen exchange?

7:38 should black play 1...c6 instead, will it strengthen his position?

Grunfeld gambit is ok ... polgar played it and many other top GMs played it. black should have a good compensation for the gambit . after 8... Bxc7 , Na6 . black should do ok . you can go chess games and see some games played out with that gambit .

I think grunfeld is not a very dangerous opening to play with black,it does not remind something like sicilian,cuz white can easily draw the game,there is theory in grunfeld that draws for white..So if you wanna win,you dont play grunfeld,except if your openent is not high level(i mean 2200 and down)or if you want to surprise him..My oppinion is that if you want to win,best oppenings are the Tarrasch,the Kings Indian ,Slav defence and Benoni.
