Jan's Opening Clinic 22: Part 6

The season finale of Season 22 of Jan's Opening Clinic features the usual questions about specific opening lines but also some old classics: "how do you study and then remember an opening?" and "can I have some tips for building a 1.e4 repertoire?" In a break with tradition Jan actually answers them, for instance sketching out such a repertoire in six minutes flat!
