Unusual Line of Grünfeld Indian Defence

GM Yuri Vovk
GM Yuri Vovk finished as a runner-up in recent Diamond Jubilee Tournament in London after tie-break with GM Andrey Sumets, his fellow countryman from Ukraine. This time I want to demonstrate you his game from round 3 when he was paired with IM Astaneh Lopez from Ireland.
IM Alex Astaneh Lopez
Vovk, playing with White pieces, faced to Grünfeld Indian Defence when the Irish master decided to go for not often played side-line.
Higher rated Vovk went into rather wild waters when White was objectively slightly worse; however, the positions arising were dynamic, full of tactical potential where is easy to slip. And this is what exactly happened...
