Fighting Chess at the Russian Superfinal 2017, Part 1 by IM Bill Paschall
Grunfeld expert Peter Svidler faces the classic Russian variation against his favorite 1.d4 defense. Svidler is now the highest ranking player to add the rare 6...Be6 to his repertoire. This variation is new and trending, although it was played against Euwe in 1938 and again by GM Tony Miles in an early game in 1973. White must find the right path here and Volkov did not even manage to maintain an equal position.
