4 Gruenfeld Defence books for Christmas

Today we consider the Gruenfeld Defence in recent books. We know the Gruenfeld as a sharp opening after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5. Both sides play in the hope to win. You must be prepared. You need tools that help you understand how to play the Gruenfeld Defence. Books such as the ones below provide you with good ideas to improve your play. These books give you good ideas.

My 12 days of Christmas is over, but I have more books to highlight. With this post, I return to my normal schedule of Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

1. The Grunfeld Defence, Vol. 1 (Grandmaster Repertoire 8) by Boris Avrukh
Grandmaster Avrukh covers all the Gruenfeld except the Exchange Variation 4.cxd5.

2. The Grunfeld Defence, Vol. 2 (Grandmaster Repertoire 9) by Boris Avrukh
The author covers the popular Exchange Variation 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.cxd5.

3. Chess Developments: The Grünfeld by David Vigorito
This provides a helpful service to update Gruenfeld players on new ideas in practice.

4. The Ultimate anti-Grunfeld: A Saemisch Repertoire by Dmitry Svetushkin
This details the possibilities after 3.f3 vs the Gruenfeld or the King's Indian Saemisch.
