2-What this series is about
This is a full repertoire against 1.Nf3, 1.c4 and 1.g3, but can also be considered Part 5 of Jan’s repertoire against 1.d4, since it fills in all the gaps Black needs to be able to handle any kind of “closed” game. Jan explains his approach, the transpositions it involves and what move orders to pay attention to.
