Jan's Opening Clinic 22: Part 5

Episode 5 of Series 22 of Jan's Opening Clinic is short but sweet. In just over half an hour Jan tackles 7 more chess24 Premium Member questions about a wide range of chess openings. Topics include the Caro-Kann, the Queen's Gambit Accepted, the London, the Benko and why 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.Bc4 shouldn't worry anyone who's planning on playing Robin van Kampen's repertoire in the Taimanov Sicilian.   

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, Part 3, Part 4. And now for the latest episode:
