  lost in space: move order is salv defense, but the position can also be reached via grünfeld:

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. e3 0-0 6. Bd3 Bg4 7. h3 Bxf3 8. Qxf3 c6 9. 0-0 e6....

Dec-25-14  ColdSong: I'd rather say it's a grunfeld,because of that bishop g7.See also how Smyslov was able to play a grunfeld via the QGA.

  lost in space: Seems, not only me thinks that the only interesting issue of this game is the question if it is a Slav or a Grünfeld. And, to be honest: I don’t care.
