    the grunfeld became the main choice against d4 at gm level. remember the candidates in kazan, when the grunfeld did so well, except in the last gelfand-grischuk game. remember kramnik playing reti/english against grischuk just to avoid this opening.

    I think it changes from one tournament to the next.  Although since I have been following chess since about 2008-9 I think the most common defence against 1. d4 at 2700+ tournaments has been the Slav.

    Yes, so I suppose technically that's two openings. Undecided
