Jan's Opening Clinic 22: Part 3

Episode 3 of Season 22 of Jan's Opening Clinic is a bonanza for fans of dodgy sidelines, since our man Jan not only completes the dodgy sideline trilogy by giving a suggestion against 1.c4 (he previously tackled 1.e4 and 1.d4), but also provides some offbeat options against the Dutch Defence, what some might call dodgy sidelines against a dodgy sideline! Of course most users were looking for the best lines, and Jan once more shared his knowledge of a wide range of chess openings.  

You can find all the questions Jan was asked under this article, and all the answers so far in Season 22 are here: Part 1, Part 2. And now for the latest episode:
