The Modernized Grunfeld Defense by Yaroslav Zherebukh
I have played absolutely everything against 1.d4 from the Slav Defense, Queen’s Gambit, Benko Gambit, King’s Indian Defense, Nimzo-Indian Defense to the Dutch… you name it. Fortunately, my quest for finding the best opening ended once I discovered the Grünfeld Defense.
I immediately felt drawn to the dynamic positions the opening has to offer. I was also particularly attracted to the possibility of getting good play without resorting to a long passive defense.
It’s all simple: memorize a few lines and then go fight for the initiative from the very beginning. I have spent well over 1,000 hours analyzing the Grünfeld throughout the years. It took a bit over 200 hours to review, update and incorporate everything into this book. Therefore, I am very proud to present this work and hope that you will enjoy it!
My motivation for writing this book was twofold:
- To contribute to the opening theory of the Grünfeld Defense.
- To inspire more people to play chess after seeing the beauty of the game through the Grünfeld Defense lenses. I have lost count of all the sacrifices and tactics in the 16 chapters of the book.
I wish you all good luck on your Grünfeld journey.
