GM Khachiyan turns his eye to an oft neglected subject: how to play your less pretty positions. There are many points to be scored in these positions too, if you set your mind to it. Khachiyan presents us with a tricky opening position from the Gruenfeld, explains how he understood his problem as black, and how he chose to solve it; then guides us through the entire game to show the full scope of his defense.
