Gruenfeld Exchange Variation My Game Analysis With Qa4

I was given the opportunity to play Qa4+ in the Gruenfeld Exchange Variation with black blocking the check with Bd7. I want to see what I can improve upon by looking at my game and some master games. End with some points to remember for myself.

My Game:

Master Games:
To limit clutter I put all the games into the same pgn, most of the games are incomplete to show the gist of the opening and early middlegame.

Next time I get to play against this opening:

  • Don't rush to play e5, try to keep the pawn duo intact
  • Remember a rook usually belongs on d1
  • The computer likes Bf4 maybe play this and analyze how it played a part
  • A bishop on e3 helps prevent c5
