Jun-20-10  Hesam7: Very strange way of countering the Grunfeld.
Jun-20-10  4tmac: 5.e3 seems slow & it is unusual. But white looks like he gets a solid game. I wonder why few people play this?
Jul-27-15  Novirasputin: The international chess academy uploaded this 2 part video discussing this game to youtube: p1.

We hope to make it into a series with all our famous coaches.
