About

𝐍𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐝 𝐀𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫: GM Ernst Grünfeld (Austrian) 𝐌𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐬: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 The Grünfeld is a chess opening that is named after Ernst Grünfeld, who introduced it into international play in 1922. It gained popularity after Grünfeld defeated future world champion Alexander Alekhine in his first game using the opening. Over the years, the Grünfeld has been adopted by numerous prominent players, including Vasily Smyslov, Viktor Korchnoi, Leonid Stein, and Bobby Fischer. Garry Kasparov also frequently used this defence in his World Championship matches against Anatoly Karpov and Vladimir Kramnik. Currently active notable players who employ the Grünfeld include Magnus Carlsen, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Loek van Wely, Peter Svidler, Peter Leko, Viswanathan Anand, Luke McShane, Ian Nepomniachtchi, and Gata Kamsky. The Grünfeld has been played in several important chess matches, such as the World Chess Championship 2010 between Anand and Veselin Topalov, the World Chess Championship 2012 between Anand and Boris Gelfand, and the World Chess Champions.
