Oct-15-16  whiteshark: According to this database the only time Nimzo faced the Gruenfeld w/ white (and I wouldn't even call it a (pure) Grünfeld due to <4...Qxd5>).
Oct-15-16  Olavi: In some respectable circles, very serious books, playing d7-d5 without waiting for the parent move Nc3 was called the Bastard Grünfeld.

They should not have used language like that.

Oct-15-16  Retireborn: Writers from the 40s/50s (eg Heidenfeld) would classify this as a King's Indian rather than a Gruenfeld. It's just a matter of fashion I suppose.
Oct-16-16  Olavi: I think they thought that Nf6xd5xc3 and then chipping away with c7-c5 was the the real Grünfeld.

It means that they have lost the argument.
