The lines I suggest are the lines I have intended and still intend to play. Many of them I have already used, both in official and training games, and they have withstood the test of time and practice.
This is a repertoire I firmly believe in. It has served me well and I will continue to rely on it in the future. I had great results with these lines and I wish you have even better ones. Good luck!
