The Grünfeld Formula

DVD-box, ChessBase, 1. edition 2021

From the series »Fritz Trainer Eröffnung«

Incl. Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

The story goes that a low-rated player once bravely asked Viktor Korchnoi his advice about what opening to play against a stronger opponent. “Play Grünfeld” was the grumpy reply. “Play Grünfeld against everything apart from 1 e4."

I have no way of verifying this story, but it certainly inspired me to think about whether this was possible and the end result is this new ChessBase course.

Naturally, a universal approach using ...Nf6, ...g7-g6 and ...d7-d5 as the base would be very useful for players of all classes, saving time and energy and promising a fluid, dynamic position.

I’ve found Korchnoi’s advice to be mostly true, but there are a few important exceptions when Black can do better than just trot out the Grünfeld Formula. Look out for those differences!

This is a course full of opening ideas and suggestions for Black, against all of:

  • 1 b3

  • 1 b4

  • King’s Indian Attack

  • 1 f4

  • 1 c4

  • 1 Nf3

  • QP Systems including London, Torre, Trompowski, Barry Attack, Colle, Stonewall

A comprehensive list!

  • Video running time: over 6 hours (English)

  • With interactive training including video feedback

  • Exclusive database with model games
