Gruenfeld Defense: Makogonov Variation

  • #1

  • #2

    This variation is very harmless for black. I seem to recall a 2700+ player (Leko?) had the black side of this position and got really easy equality with the strange move 6...Nc6!?

  • #3


  • #4

    what if b5 in that position?

  • #5

    what if:

    b5  Nxd4  Qxd4  Ne4  Qd1  Nxc3

  • #6

    Nxd4 just loses a piece to exd4. Na5 should be played

  • #7

    yeah, but still knights on the rim are dim

  • #8

    It is common for knights to go to a5 in the Grünfeld

  • #9

    Let's make it happen!
