Black Double Fianchettos In Process
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The intent is for Black to play b6 or b5 and g6 or g5. Complete fianchettos may never materialize. Or, some form later after a bishop relocation.

This is a mostly unedited collection split. Many White fianchetto games need to be removed, particularly English/Reti games. Sight under construction by Fredthebear.
