"I'm up a piece, with compensation!" That's a pleasant situation to be in, as you might guess. GM Finegold shows you how he got there. Using an offbeat variation against the Grunfeld that no other GM plays, our video author nabs two easy wins. In one, Black is denied the ability to castle. In the second, he manages, but is pulverized on f7 anyway. Finegold even finds a few finesses that are better than winning a queen! Watch him turn Iceland into his playland.
