The Grunfeld Defence-Classical Games

Some Games

I am having big problems trying to come up with a viable way to fight the Grunfeld so it seemed like a good idea to see what Black is up up. Botvinnik had some big battles against Smyslov in the Grunfeld but also upheld the Black side.

It’s early in the game but how should Black continue?
