Wherever it belongs, it seems that Nigel Davies has written a repertoire book for Everyman about it that will doubtless need to find a home for discussion here as and when it becomes available.

Most 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.c4 c5 stuff comes under Flank Openings or Nimzo-Benonis, depending on whether White plays, respectively, 4.Nf3 or 4.d5.  It's the same classification scheme you find almost everywhere.

Where Does the Catalan Belong?

So I did a basic search for "Catalan" on this forum and I had hits from multiple sections, but didn't really find anything extensive about the opening, just basic references. Which sub-forum is the Catalan covered in? d4/d5? Nimzo and Benonis?

Thanks in advance.
