  Mateo: Interesting Gruenfeld by one of his main defenders.

22.h4 seemed useless and 23.Qc2?!, allowing the Knight to reach c4, was the turning point. 23.Qxe8 Rxe8 24.Be2 (impeding Nc4)should be considered.

White loses a pawn after 31.Nh3?. 31.Ne2 looks more stubborn although Black dominates the board : control of the open file, Bishop pair.

Feb-06-09  TheChessGuy: That central pawn chain! Svidler's games in the Grunfeld are full of great ideas for anyone who decides to take up the cause of the black pieces in it.
