Two games from TWIC 956 are presented.

  • Game 1 shows how harmful poor preparation can be for black.
  • Game 2 shows a nice attack in the 7.Qa4+ exchange variation after some enterprising play from white and some cooperative defence from black. 

Game 1
Black made an odd opening choice as Avrukh already analyzed to move 23 as clear advantage for white in 1.d4 Vol2(Quality Chess 2009). No improvement was shown and white put an a nice endgame display to claim the win.

This game serves as a warning for unprepared Grunfeld players.

Game 2
The search for weapons to use against the Grunfeld continues. The disruptive check 7.Qa4+ produced a complex game after 7…Qd7 but the result of the game was not related to the opening.
