Sep-06-13  ColdSong: That's,probably still nowadays,(I don't especially know this opening's theory) a good example about how to kill the Grunfeld.
Sep-06-13  parisattack: Two of my favorite players in battle. Stein was outplayed in the opening here. He got a sterile position from the Grunfeld and never was really in the game.
