A cool piece sacrifice in the 5.Bf4 Grünfeld

Hi everybody,

This is my first Blog post.

I would like to show you an interesting (and correct) piece sacrifice which I found in an otb tournament game of mine last year.

It is not really a complete novelty, because the move had already been played 11 times before my game according to my database, but it is not a very well known line and it scored 100% for Black so far.

All Grünfeld players should have a look at this and consider adding it to their repertoire.

First here is the game, where my opponent accepted the bishop. Comments are my own, but assisted by Shredder (engine).

And now, taken from my database, a pgn which includes all games where White did not take the bishop on c2.

2 games continued with 12.Qd2 and 8 games with 12.Qe2.

Please let me know if you find any improvements for Black! All constructive comments are welcome.
