Magnus Carlsen second and all-round chess openings guru Jan Gustafsson is back to answer your questions in Season 25 of the long-running Jan’s Opening Clinic show. Don’t miss the chance to get personal tips on any aspect of chess openings, whether you’re new to the game or a seasoned professional looking to gather some opening ideas this February like a squirrel hording nuts for the long active months ahead.

The format is simple:
If you’re still not clear on the format you can check out the previous seasons. For instance, questions were asked for Season 24 here, then Jan answered in six instalments: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 and Part 6.
