This question has also been asked in the discussion section of the Chessable course.....seems that 2 e4 is the recommendation against both 1...c6 and 1....e6. 


Is that the recommendation against 1...c5 as well, and if not why not. Wink



No they go for regular g3 set-ups against the symmetrical....as for why, they have just recorded a Q & A on Chess 24 where they cover their reasoning for selecting 2 e4 against 1...e6 and 1...c6. If you are not a Chess 24 member you can still watch the session from the achieves.

Chessable Botvinnik English

This course has just been published, done by Simon Williams and Richard Palliser. It has an interesting move order e.g. 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 to get to the Botvinnik. Against e6, it goes 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 e6 3.Nc3 with the Mikenas. However, it doesn't reveal the recommendations against two of the soundest replies i.e. 1.c4 e6 or 1.c4 c6. If they stick with 2.Nc3 this would lead to main line d4 lines and lots of theory. If 2.g3. that's still a lot of theory and strategy to leave to the apparent footnotes of the course. Anyone know ?
