Thanks for pointing that out, it seems that black has others options in the Nh3 line anyway so that's fine.

What do you think of the closed c6 line of the main line ?

Those when you don't answer d5 with e5 with black but Bd7 or Qe8. They seem fine to me.

I don't knowif you can still play them if white first play b3-Bb2 then d5. Things have maybe changed then.

I notice Glenn analyses the game Ding Liren - Nepomniatchi Ian played in the online rapidtournament of Legends of chess.

In the line 1.d4 f5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 g6 4.c4 Bg7 5.Nc3 0-0 6.Nh3 d6 7.d5 Na6 8.Nf4 Nc5 9.h4 e5 10.dxe6 c6 Glenn is too optimistic about black's chances.
After 11.h5 gxh5 there are more useful moves than 12.Nxh5 and 12.e3.
Stockfish NNUE gives 12.Bh3 while Leela shows 12.Qc2 so each time putting pressure on the weak f5 pawn and at the same time not allowing Bxe6. Both lead to depressing positions for black.
