Here is my game against the KID 9....Nh5 line when I used to play 1.d4 before I became of age and switched to 1.c4, Black is practically busted!  I never won the game because I did not find the correct continuation, but it was nothing to do with the opening.  If I had found 28.g4 instead of playing the wussie 28.g3 I think I could have done better.  Notice the beautiful exchange sacrifice 19.Rxe5 which I think was Shirovs idea.

 

 The exchange sac idea belongs to the Hungarian GM Gabor Kallai, who has played it several years before Shirov. The line is resolved- Black is OK after 21...Rad8, more than 100 games played like that.

Kasparov liked the Gruenfeld so it must have something going for it.

As well as King's Indians, QGD's (mainly Tarrasch).

What did Kasparov not play?

 

Before becoming World Champion, he also played the Modern Benoni a lot.

 

After losing the World Championship, he was playing QGA, Slav, Nimzo-Indian until he quit in 2005.

 

Against 1.c4, Kasparov often played 1...g6.

 

About the only thing I've never seen Kasparov play against 1.d4 (or 1.c4 or 1.Nf3) is the Dutch.
