Gruenfeld Exchange Grischuk

The logical Gruenfeld Defence Exchange Variation 4.cxd5 pits White's central pawn play against Black threats on the queenside. Many pawns disappear from the board early in the game. Heavy pieces remain. The open lines allow complex tactics. Black tried a rare line in 8...Nd7 and lost a rook in the game Alexander Grischuk vs Ian Nepomniachtchi.

Grischuk (2766) - Nepomniachtchi (2757), Speed 3m+1spm INT, 7.8.2018 begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.cxd5 Nxd5 5.e4 Nxc3 6.bxc3 Bg7 7.Nf3 c5 8.Rb1 Nd7 [8...0-0 9.Be2=] 9.Bd3 Qa5 [Another interesting try is 9...Nb6 10.Ba3 cxd4 11.cxd4 0-0 12.0-0 Bxd4 13.Nxd4 Qxd4 14.Bxe7+/=] 10.Bd2 Qxa2 11.0-0 0-0 12.Re1 Qa5 13.e5 e6?!
