My most used openings.

Short Ponziani win for white.
Chigorin vs Winawer, 1901 
(C44) King's Pawn Game, 20 moves, 1-0

Black winning with Grunfeld Defense.
Sosonko vs M Stean, 1972
(D97) Grunfeld, Russian, 57 moves, 0-1

Example of non-castled King running into problems.
M Rohde vs I Rogers, 1982 
(D80) Grunfeld, 23 moves, 0-1

A good reason not to play the Ponziani. :(
