Grzegorz Gajewski (born 19 July 1985) is a Polish chess player. He was awarded the title of Grandmaster by FIDE in 2006.

In 2011 Gajewski won the Cappelle-la-Grande Open.[1] In 2012 he won the 14th Open International de Sants, Hostafrancs i La Bordeta in Barcelona edging out Aleksandr Rakhmanov, Emilio Cordova, Kevin Spraggett and Samuel Shankland on tiebreak score, after all players scored 8 points from 10 games.[2][3] Gajewski won the Polish Chess Championship in 2015.[4]

Gajewski played for the Polish team in the Chess Olympiads of 2008 in Dresden, where he played on the fourth board scoring 6½ points from 10 games, and 2014 in Tromsø.[5] He also took part in the European Team Chess Championship in 2007, 2009, 2013 and 2015; Gajewski won the individual silver medal on board three in 2007.[6]

He was a second to Viswanathan Anand in the World Chess Championship 2014, held in Sochi, Russia, and has worked as his second during several events since then.[7] A strong opening theoretician, Gajewski is probably most known in the chess world by the gambit move 10...d5!? in the Ruy Lopez opening which he introduced in July 2007 during a tournament in Pardubice.[8]
