Feb-09-13  David2009: J Wimmer vs M Dos Santos, 1998 is a very impressive White victory: Black plays natural moves and yet gets crushed. Perhaps the whole Gruenfeld Defense: Modern Exchange Variation is bad for Black.

Assuming Black is playing for a win, the main Black alternative to 12...Nc6 is 12...b6 when White can force a draw in the variation 13.Qc1 Bb7 14.Bc4 Qa4 14.Bb5 Qa2 15.Bc4 Qa4 or try for more e.g. with 16.Rb2.

See Game Collection: Grunfeld, Modern Exchange 8.Rb1

When playing through the game I looked for Black improvements. Here are two stages in the game where Crafty End Game Trainer diverges from Black's defence in the game, but engine analysis (Fritz 12) confirms that White can win.
