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!?
what if b5 in that position?
b5 Nxd4 Qxd4 Ne4 Qd1 Nxc3
Nxd4 just loses a piece to exd4. Na5 should be played
yeah, but still knights on the rim are dim
It is common for knights to go to a5 in the Grünfeld
Let's make it happen!
