Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Revolution Revisited - Part 8

Opening: D85: Grunfeld defence

Player(s): Tennant, Akobian, Wei Yi, Yermolinsky

Throughout his illustrious career, Garry Kasparov had often employed the Gruenfeld Defense as Black. Usually to a great success, although he had his share of problems in World Championship matches with Karpov and Kramnik. Perhaps, a bit exasperated, Garry once said that the Gruenfeld is OK as long as you remember the required ten exact replies in the ten lines your opposition can throw at you. Sounds like a chore, even to the best-prepared player.

One of those lines is the Classical Main Variation with Be3, which I both faced numerous times and employed as White. In this video, I'd like to show some of my more recent experiences.
