In Season 20, Episode 3 of Jan's Opening Clinic, Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson once again sets out to cure the chess opening ailments of chess24 Premium members. There's a wide range of openings, from Petroffs and Berlins to a "shady" line exotically known as the Hennig-Shara Gambit. Jan perhaps sums up his mission when at one point he comments, "You can face the future maybe not with confidence, but with some kind of repertoire, and what more can anyone want?" Indeed!
In fact Jan summed up his mission once more at the end:
I hope we all learned something. I certainly did. I should probably keep this a secret, but one big reason I’m doing these opening clinics is I actually learn something looking at your questions. There are a lot of thoughtful questions and I don’t have the answers to all of them. They make me think about stuff that maybe I haven’t considered... and by thinking about I mean putting it into my computer and pressing a button.
Once again we've added clickable timestamps that let you go straight to a question that interests you - you can also find those timestamps in the description under the video at YouTube:
The 4th part of Jan's answers will be published at 17:00 CEST on Thursday, 12 July.
